All,
My reply was getting too long so I decided to turn this into a meditation. What links have helped inspire you, teach you, and made you a better programmer? Please try to categorize the links as best you can (I need to do some housekeeping myself).

[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++
[choroba]: it's a long running test, so it's normally skipped unless an env var is set
[choroba]: nobody has been bothered to set the variable in the last 3 years
[marinersk]: sub newtest{my $expected_result = &target('foo'); my $actual_result = &target('foo'); if ($actual_result eq $expected_result) { &tdd_success(); } else { &tdd_fail(); } } # Test works after three years!
[choroba]: or nobody bothered...
[choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
[marinersk]: :: ducking ::
[choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
