in reply to Random thoughts on programming

If you're a code mentor (you have low-level coders, whether they be DB, JAVA, J++,
JSP, ASP, PHP, SOAP) coders looking for DB info, always ask what their project is,
not what they're trying to do at the moment. I've had way too many interactions
w/newbies trying to work around problems w/me as a shepard.

When I circumvented these situations, eventually, by systematically asking detailed q's,
I've been able to solve any simple problem I've come against.

This has saved me enough time to POST to this heavenly subj.,
even though there were so many BRILLANT responses.

Just wanted to add what <italic>little</italic> I could.
