SQLite really sucks "SQL-wise".

SQLite rules for what it is: an utterly free, stable, embeddable, minimalistic engine. Saying it sucks because it doesn't match your use case is like saying a saw sucks because it won't drive nails well.

    I was actually saying "SQLite's SQL features sucks (as in: are lacking)". To be more specific: no dates, very limited ALTER TABLE. Is that more objective now? (Although now that I think of it, those two lacking features are crippling *for my use cases*, others might not be bothered with that).

[erix]: that should be "to an already-too-late- project" I think
[ambrus]: oh yes, we have a pretty good example of that when they reorganized the grill place in the restaurant nearby.
[ambrus]: it now has two more people working there, and they're serving slower and more expensive.
[ambrus]: It used to be just a master cook who takes the order and puts the meat and eggs on the open grill plate table, and an assistant who removes them to a plate, adds the side dish, and gives the plate to the people in the queue, plus a cashier.
[ambrus]: Now it has five people instead of three, some sort of call number ticket system where people wait a lot for their food to get ready (it's the same kinds of grilled meat and fish on the same equipment, it won't actually fry slower),
[ambrus]: it's slow as hell, and the food costs significantly more.
[ambrus]: We no longer eat there.
LanX Everybody quotes it, some people read it, and a few people go by it
[ambrus]: LanX: why would I read it? isn't it a book for managers? I don't want to be a manager.
[ambrus]: I don't quote it either.
