in reply to The code I'm most proud of is:

It's something I wrote as a stopgap at a former job many many years ago. It's still in production because a) it works, b) the customers use it as well as the company, c) it's platform-independent, and d) it works way better on Windows than anything the VB folks did.

Plus, it's used in a software package that helps save people's lives, so that doesn't hurt.

[erix]: it has TOP, IIRC
[Corion]: erix: Ah. I use where 1 = 0 for queries where I only am interested in the structure ;)
[erix]: 1=0 is as short as TOP :)
[erix]: "code of someone that died" -- kinda nice if your code stops working too
[erix]: hard to implement, hmm
[Corion]: erix: Well, they also seem to have changed the server, or some software, or whatever, and seem to be in the process of changing the DB schema from having the "username" as primary key to something else.
[Corion]: Far too many things being done at once, or maybe only now has it become apparent that nobody knows that piece of software anymore
