what comes after 18 straight hours of database work? i dunno, that’s when i passed out. i was converting a database for a friend of mine and something innocuous happened and turned a nothing project into something long and tedious – not of a critical nature, just an “oh damn i have to start at the beginning” event. The kinda crap that happens when you go from one system to another and you have to make sure everything is just right before you press that button of no return. the key children is to have plenty of back ups.
