I wouldn't recommend running delete from <tablename>; -- that's going to delete everything from the table, leaving you with nothing.

    Yes, including the records older than 60 days. The aim will have been reached. ;-)

      I'm happy to see that at least one Monk has some kind of humor. I forgot the irony tags. But with this kind of asking you can only get angry or sarcastic, IMO.

        I didn't downvote above but probably should. A sarcastic answer to punish one lazy hacker might bite neophyte seekers down the road who will ask with tears in glassy eyes: WHY? WHY DOES TEH PERL DO THIS TO ME?
