The russian cowboy built eyebleeding database from hell is back.

This morning I was informed I needed to do some work on it. I set aside a day and a half and started girding myself for the horrors to come.

About 25 minutes ago I started work on it (having done a few other bits and bobs in between).

About 10 minutes ago I finished.

It just worked. I did the sensible straightforward thing and it just worked. That database has never done that before. It's always been a case of having to work out what the hell is going on, sending test data through the systems, debuging and tracing each and every minute detail, identifying the strange and arcane ways in which it operates and them adding small changes, then undoing them and trying again, and again, and again, and again...

This time it just worked.

I'm confused now - my world is broken.

Top Tip!

Don't tell your boss that it only took 15mins. They will never believe you again (well they may not anyway) about how long something will take.

PS Using Mozilla Firefox 0.9.3 the subject line in the comment box comes up as white letter on a white background?! Though the message box is ok.

You are being lulled into a false sense of security.

Do not turn your back on the database. I'd also recommend sleeping with one eye open for the next few nights. It's up to something.
