Google released codesearch yesterday, and we’ve been having fun at the office reading people’s source comments when we search for certain terms. As Heidi puts it, “It’s an amazing repository for coder pathos made public.”

My favorite bit, for purely whimsical reasons, comes from the MIDI-perl library. Do a search for “freakout” and you might find this:

} else {
die “BADASS FREAKOUT ERROR 31415!”;
}

It also delights me that so many functions are named freakout() or have “freakout” in their name.
