in reply to (OT) How do you relax and "recharge"?

Since nobody has meantioned a "breathing technique" yet, when my mind starts turning to mush and everything starts looking like 1s and 0s - I practice the Ibuki (similar to Chinese Qiqong) breathing techniques of Goju-ryu Karatedo. This mainly means Sanchin training but I've found the breathing and movements of Tai Chi and other "soft" styles of kung-fu and even Yoga to help in regaining alot of energy as well.

    I'm not familiar with Ibuki, but I have done some Qi-gung practice.
    For me, the Dragon breath is very energizing; but it is *not* conducive to sitting and programming, its more for physical energy.
    What qi-gung form is Ibuki most like?

      Ibuki (or Ikibuki) is the combination of go (hard;Sanchin) and ju (Soft;Tensho) breathing of Goju-ryu. Sanchin would be like Tiger or Lion's breath (tensed and ready to attack/defend at any moment) while Tensho would be Dragon's breath (subtle with a hidden power waiting to trap and release).

        IC, thank you very much!

        Unfortunately, Tiger or Lion breathing at work would be too conspicuous; and I can't always get away to do them someplace else, like maybe outside.
        I have done Dragon breathing at my desk without attracting too much attention.

[shmem]: perldigious: as always - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Ther must be a very compelling reason for changing column names in a database. Those are rare.
[Corion]: If you have whitespace in the column names in the database, whap the DBAs ;)
[shmem]: It's common for some vendors to have column names such as WRSTVG or some other such whizzbang, and another table where these names are mapped to something meaningful depending on how you look at the data
