in reply to My cow-orkers mostly...

Most of my work has to do with automating tasks, so I can safely say my co-workers are written in Perl. My employer used to hire an army of temps to go through various logs and spot/fix problems (easy fixes, usually, like restoring readable permissions on shared folders). Now, a nightly script does it all.

I just have to be careful not to code my own replacement. ;-)

[marinersk]: Corion This DBA wants to smack others who like putting whitespace in column names.
[marinersk]: s/smack/whap/;
[talexb]: Wow, what hilariously bad form.
[SuicideJunkie]: Just wait; someday soon, you'll be given a DB with unicode emojis in the column names.
[Corion]: marinersk: Well, I have done select statements like select sum(foo) as "Total Amount", ..., but to have a table like that makes me shudder
[Corion]: SuicideJunkie: :-D
[marinersk]: SuicideJunkie LOL
[choroba]: Woohoo! Fixed a test that hasn't run for 3 years.
[marinersk]: Corion Yes, sometimes whitespace in column headers is acceptable, but I still consider it be less than desireable if that query might get revectored for an ETL-esque process...
[marinersk]: choroba++
