    ooohh instrumental, detrimental, potato, potatoe 🙂

    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". 😉

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.
    "Change is inevitable... change for the better is not".
    "Dear Lord... I'm a DBA so please give me patience because, if you give me strength, I'm going to need bail money too!"

    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.
