Boo hiss. No explanation of what a placeholder is. While I could google for it, this article significantly lacks without a clear definition.
And boo hiss to you too. You don't even need to go to Google to learn about placeholders -- just do a search on this site and you'll find plenty of explanations.
And I suspect your definition of "technical know-how" relies more on trolling than on craftmanship.
Life is short: get busy!
Update: Apologies all (especially original poster tilly) if this node seemed a little hard on the Anonymous Monk. I just thought it was odd that someone would go to the trouble of reading a DBI-related post without knowing what a placeholder was, then complain about it without doing any research.
