    There's only been half a dozen in this version of the Coral.

    Congrats Paul, but you know for sure that come tomorrow AM the Flump will have made sure yours breaks one of the un-written rules!

    Off for an early night, feel pretty rough.
    Night all!

    Yeah Geo...I figured I'd enjoy it while it lasts *L*

    I guess everyone's been signing off early lately....wassup with that?

    Nice Sean made it past the hatchet day.

    Feel Better, Geo...I prescribe some whiskey and some cake, taken during a gymnastics routine.

    I just read "100 Things To Do Before You Die". I was surprised that "Yell for help!!" wasn't one of them

    This version? Version III? Show them me it.

    And no - I've reviewed the rules and that connect four (minor rubber) stands. For a minute I thought he was entitled to only 3/5ths points but I see he is no longer a fireman.

    Congratulations Paul - I have you down as an early leader in this game. I don't even remember you scoring a single point in the last - the quiet ones are always the ones to be wary of.

    There's a 4 on here: http://www.dbforums.com/showthread.p...32631&page=140

    But no doubt it's invalid because it was scored on a day with ending in a "y" or something

    Poots, what mobile phone do yous got? I might be sorting my upgrade out this weekend and want to make sure I've considered all the options.

    Tocco is currently top of the list, but only after a full test of texting with a touchscreen...

    I am neck deep in it for a friday. I need to pull off a 5 touchdown game today. Still no answer as to why we are suddenly rebooting the cluster once a week. i think my coworkers are determined to do everything in an arse backwards way with regards to sql.

    Happy Halloween everyone! any scary costumes around? I almost had a heart attack this morning. I came to work early today (6am) it was still dark and when I walked into the office it was still not fully lit. I thought I was the only one in office (most people start at 7:30) that's when out of nowhere this coworker of mine showed up with a freakin' scary Joker mask (same makeup mask from the movie The Dark Knight). I managed not show any reaction from the outside (that's what he said) but I felt like my heart skipped some beats .. I hate it when that happens. Men should not be scared of anything .. anyhow .. happy Halloween

    I've seen ERDs that look like passing zone markers on a two-lane road.
    I've seen nested cursors embedded in triggers.
    I've seen floating point surrogate keys.

    Nothing scares me anymore.

    I really got a whole lot of nothing back in the email from the manager guy. The DBA guy had noticed the boxes were not being rebooted on a regular schedule. No one has answered the question as to why the boxes need to be rebooted in the first place.

    once a week or so I say "the emperor wears no clothes" and everyone just shrugs their shoulders and continues doing what they are doing. It is this whole culture of mediocrity that is just at a toxic level here. Which is fine by me in a certain way because I can afford to be mediocre sometimes. I very rarely miss the times when I had to be extraordinary every day. I am too old, tired and sick to deal with that these days.
