Hungarians were just misunderstood

Joel on Software: Making Wrong Code Look Wrong

I've never liked Hungarian Notation... or should I say, Systems Hungarian. But I like the idea of Apps Hungarian. I've used the same conventions in the past but didn't have a name for it. Now there's a well-written piece I can point at anytime someone asks me to explain why I think lpsz is a stupid variable prefix. Not surprisingly, Joel's site gets the top 2 hits on Google for lpsz hungarian. Thanks Joel.
