Yeah I quite agree. Thats the lazy way to comment - just to say you have
done it. I can appreciate your sentiments as I'm currently adding comments
to a hunk of my own code. It's easy to think - Oh sure , I'll remember why I
did that when I look at it again in 6 months time  - like hell I will! So
trying to write meaningful comments is an art in itself.

Does anyone else roll their eyes when they see files that are over half
useless comments like this?

//Adding an event listener to the timer object
timer.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, updateTime);
//Initializing timer object

Hate 'em.
