Not real coding, but one of my previous bosses did not trust routing algorithms. Then he forced use to implement only static routing in the whole ISP network.
Guess what is happened when a link go down
"Did not trust routing algorithms" - That genuinely made me laugh! :P
He also refuse to setup Active Directory for the enterprise network (30 PC with a remote site). Everyone a new employer was hired it was a nightmare: configure printers, network shares, install softwares, etc. It takes days.
We have an email server (an old Zimbra server, unable to upgrade) in-house, connected with a simple ADSL. The original reason was that we send lot of internal emails, the real reason was that he want to secretyl read and control all the employeers email.
Haha, how very authoritarian of him! I hope you are still not working at this place. :P
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
