indents/no indents

I'd much rather have well commented code than indents and my editor of choice can soon indent code for me if I need it too. Personally I use both but then I had to support someone else's code from a very early age who never put a single comment to their code, never mind followed change control procedures (which were very minimal), did very limited testing, but management though the world of them, it was also the age of short variable names which didn't help, overall I was very lucky in the enviornment I worked in then as it taught me many lessons which I used throughout my career to improve procedures, fault solve and debug. My comments are for me as much as anyone else as I don't expect to instanlt remember n years later why I did something in a particular way which could often be due to a bug in the compiler or os at that time.
