old-school code checklist

You can’t call it old-school code unless a majority of these are true:

  • global vars are all registered at the top of the file, and are used to track state
  • Comments contain author’s initials and a date
  • Last line of the file is just the number 1;
  • Uses LDAP
  • You recognize the dude that wrote it because you’ve seen his email address at the bottom of some man pages
