    Anyone see this ad on Cprogramming.com?

    From one of the randomly generated ads on Cprogramming.com:

    I guess they decided the best way to attract programmers is to show they really need one.

    *On a side note: This isn't nessassarily an syntax error, as there are a number of reasons you could see this code, but seriously, you just know deep down the ad guy screwed this up.

    Code:
    actually, it could just be the bottom of a function/loop
    
    
    just place someting like
    
    
    {
    asdjasd
    asd
    asdas
    da
    sd
    asd
    asd  
    
    *ad here*
    
    
    
    then the ad closes the bracket 
    
    }
    Hmm

    It makes sense to me. Obviously they tried to compile without the comments, but because they don't have any of the people they needed, they had to comment it out. What they should have done is put "TODO: " at the top.

    All the DICE.com bugs have syntax problems.

    For example, the common one (same bug in their ASP, Java, etc. version)
    Code:
    if (salary < good)
    {
      go_to_dice();
    }
    else
    {
      suck_it_up();
    }
    While not a perfect reproduction, they all follow that format. Of course the problem being, they tell you to suck it up if you have a good salary, as opposed to telling you to suck it up if you don't go to dice.
