    Hello,

    I just have to make a general DB comment, just in case there is anyone out there currently pondering the development of a new DB based application. If you're thinking of employing the new? technique of naming your tables, and/or columns randomly, for example:

    a001, a002, c00000305.

    Let me strongly suggest that you not. I don't know who came up with this idea, but I can't post here what ought to be done to them.
    Just don't do it.

    Well, I had to live with such a design (table names only, though) for 5 years. You should have seen the nicely formatted code too.
