So you hypothesize that brian_d_foy "voluntarily" invoked his "own free will" more than 1,330 times to reduce his XP?

Maybe he used PBP to program execution of the point-reduction mechanism? Or, less gracefully, did he do it in a C-style loop? Using Fortran? ADA?

Even though some adepts have -- in the past, it is rumored -- acted to reduce their XP by large amounts, /me thinks eyepopslikeamosquito has a reasonable question.

[Corion]: My current approach for subtotals involves rerunning the given query, with the hint to the user that they should use a temporary table if they want better performance.
[Corion]: But I could create that temporary table in the module and use it for the improved perfomance directly instead.
[Corion]: And the question is, what would be better/preferred ;-)
[Corion]: Hmm - not exactly like the ROLLUP command. Ah well.
[hippo]: Make it an option?
