News: McDonald's: "interesting" food but good pattern documentation?

  1. Someone pointed out a Design Patterns Card from McDonald's, the fast food restaurant, which is actually rather useful as a poster. Finally, something from McDonald's which might be good for you! (Note added after posting: this had nothing to do with McDonald's after all; it's from a blogger. It's just fun to poke at fast food restaurants.) (Given McDonald's culinary history, one might expect that they'd recommend the use of VB4, coded with the WingDings font, transferring "secure" information via base64, encoded with rot13 twice - for extra security, with technical leads whose job requirements include coding on crack.) Postscript: This showed up on Dzone, as "Design Patterns Quick Reference," created and posted by JavaLobby user finn0013. Way to go, finn0013, and TSS sincerely hopes you're not on crack in any way.

  2. Uh, on it it says: Copyright © 2007 Jason S. McDonald http://www.McDonaldLand.info The guy's name is McDonald, I don't think that means he works for McDonald's.

    You're right! Sorry, I figured "McDonaldland" was a registered entity of the fast food company, and missed that - whoops. Okay, folks, I think it's safe to say that Jason McDonald is not on crack in any way, and has no direct affiliation with McDonald's. I need to fire my fact-checker.

    Or actually hire one... ;)

    Shh!
  6. ....your opening copy. It still references the McDonald's restaurant (unless he also has a restaurant business too) :)

    Did you mean to say fat-checker ?
  8. I am, in fact, not on crack...[ Go to top ]

    I am not on crack. :) I went to St. Lucia for my honeymoon and everyone treated us like royalty (until they got a normal tip) because they made the same mistake you did - they all thought we were somehow affiliated with the McDonald's franchises... - Jason McDonald
  9. rot 13 twice?[ Go to top ]

    rot 13 twice on a text would return the original text? rot13(rot13("plain text")) == "plain text"
