No more Hungarian notation

Do you use Hungarian notation (or at least the common perception of what constitutes Hungarian notation)? If you’re a Lotusscript coder, it’s possible you do, given its VB legacy. Up until about a year ago, I was a rabid Hungarianist (eh?!?) But no longer. In fact, I only used it once when I moved to the world of Java, and the code got so damn wordy I dropped the scheme post-haste.

This post outlines the key arguments against using Hungarian notation for me. Have a read, see what you think. The c2 wiki link above is also worth a scan.
