( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

A thud can be heard throughout the monastery as Lady Aleena's head hits her desk in the scriptorium. Shortly thereafter the sound of breaking glass filters through the monastery's halls as her preconceptions are shattered.

Never say you will never do a thing because, one day, you will do the thing then feel foolish.

Now here is some history and what happened tonight. I said I would never use pipes in my data fields. Tonight I did. Now I am feeling more than foolish. (And I've made more work for myself while trying to make less work for myself.) I just learned my lesson.

If you feel you are about to say "I will never...", stop, think very hard, count to ten, whatever. Just do not say it! One day you will be writing a piece of code, humming a little tune stuck in your head, then you will crash into a wall because you did not take into consideration the exception you just wrote.

Have a nice day!

I started this thought in the CB and continued it here.

No matter how hysterical I get, my problems are not time sensitive. So, relax, have a cookie, and a very nice day!
Lady Aleena
