I really wish he weren't at DBFORUMS.com....
For some reason he has a reputation as a guru, but I've never personally gotten any useful advice from him on the time's he's responded to my Oracle posts. So he does not impress me.

Del Mar is a very cool city in San Diego County. He's giving it a bad name!

Sergiy can be a bit of a pain. I goaded him a little late on the Bankers Rounding thread with my replys about representing 2/3 exactly as a non-repeating decimal (or tresimal??) and our built in base 12 computers:
http://www.sqlservercentral.com/forums/shwmessage.aspx?forumid=8&messageid=370393&p=36

I just didn't want to be the only one on the forum to not post on that thread, but I found the whole thing to be a bit silly. Did anyone ever post a good solution to the orginal question? I don't feel like reading both those threads.

You know - I don't think he qualifies for twit.

I think the thing that is being missed with that thread is he is talking about a very narrow set of circumstances and a very controlled implementation. I think I believe him when he says he has it working. Still more cons than pros to the whole field for me to ever want to look at doing the same but I don't consider him a twit. He has thought it all out in far too much depth to be dismissed as a noob too.

Exactly which post has he said "By the way, this is only for a very narrow set of circumstances." Fact is, he is advocating this as a default data structure.

Twit, twit, twit.

Not true. I've summarised the criteria he uses as I see it.

The other thing is - this guy has clearly had this working (within the constraints he mentions) for a number of years. Lots of experts have now come on and told him it doesn't work and is a folly. His refusal to say "oh sh1t - you are right. My db is totally b0rked" is taken as stubborness & ignorance. Clearly (again given the caveats) it has worked for him.

Will never recommend it. Will never attempt to implement one myself. Not defending the idea but I am coming round to believing that it has worked for him.

In case anyone is stupid enough to be interested: we have one table that we ship with upgrades that only contains application-hardwired lookups, and the second is for ones that the client can change - we don't ship an override for that ...
