How has this site been detrimental to you? I find it useful.

Anyway ranting aside, I believe your article was very informative for a struggling dude like me, and this site has been detrimental for me staying on target and being motivated through these tough times.



Did you mean "instrumental" instead of "detrimental"?

Man there is so much I want to ask, but I'll uh, chill out. Anyway good article man.


The others have asked for the clarification as well but I'm confused too... XD

However, if there's things you'd like to ask, please feel free.

Hee.

So ask. @=)

If they're related to the article, ask here. If they're related to general job hunting questions, ask in the career's forum.

If they're related to SQL Server, just click HOME up above and go to the appropriate SQL version / subforum. That's what everyone is here for. If you're willing to expend a little effort, we're willing to show you the way.

Heh... Make fun of it if you want but it's not like the difference between potato and potatoe. I can just see the interview now. "I don't have much production experience but I believe I bring some detrimental talent to the table".

I've passed over potential new hires over that type of word misuse - particularly on resumes. I don't worry about it much in online forums, where it's more common to write quickly. But when I get a resume that reads "decimated information" rather than "disseminated information", it's a red flag about their ability to pay attention to details when those details matter.
