in reply to Negative Voting

While I admit that it seems unfair sometimes that your early submissions get voted down, that is one way that experienced programmers let inexperienced programmers know that there is something wrong with their code.

As an example, my first submission to the site RE: Random letters was voted down because I did more work then I needed to.

It stings, but like the first time you are thrown from a horse when you are learning to ride, or you are tossed by your instructor in Kung Fu because of misstep, this will also be instructive.

I just hope this does not convince you to not post anymore. You seem like you have a lot of promise and skill and I hope that you will continue to make valuable contributions to the community.

Corion watches from the sidelines. Or rather, from behind, as my system only gets output from that process and my programs adhere strictly to the GIGO design principle.
[erix]: ah, that's nice to hear Corion :)
[Corion]: erix: Yeah, the sad thing is that all I can do is document things, so I can point fingers when the auditors come :-/
[Corion]: "I'm here to open tickets and point fingers. And I'm all out of tickets."
[erix]: didn't Sybase have pretty good auditing? :) (this is a vague memory)
[erix]: (culprits often are upstream of db of course)
[Corion]: Ah, how I missed it. After some years, I revisit slashdot on a click-bait link, and it provides the usual humor instantly: "I didn't know Drupal had rules for sex. It must be a plug-in"
[Corion]: erix: This is not for sybase, but for the input data files, resp. their contents.
