The flip side is you made things worse, not better. Look, I caught some heat on these forums for asking other DBAs to help me come up with a plan for using cross-database views. But the point is - I started with a plan. I don't know why as a community we weren't similarly asked to help build a checklist of features important to us. (Or were we? In that case, I apologize.) I guess my observation is, in the working world, I am not GREAT at planning, but I PUT TOGETHER a plan, and have other people kick it into place before we actually go do any work that could break a bunch of stuff.
Are you aware none of the BBCode tags work any more? Yet the forum toolbar suggests you can do just that. It says:
You can use BBCodes to format your content.
Available BBCodes include: code, b, i, u, s, center, right, left, justify, hr, sub, sup, color, pre, blockquote, div, ol, ul, li, quote, url, img, youtube, google.
