I can't believe that I actually told him that 31 minus 1 really is 30.

That guy is a perfect fit for the Twit List. Just the right combination of cluelessness, inflated opinion of himself, and sense of indignant self-entitlement.

The real problem with the Twit List will be keeping it to a reasonable size. We are operating in a target-rich environment.



Edit: Now that I realize how really large this guy it, let me just point out that this was all Kristen's idea.

If he was willing to cheat on a test, I'll bet he'd be willing to lie about his grade.

Seems unlikely.

The minimum salary in the NBA is about 1 million US $ per year, so he would be better off spending time on his free throws and jump shot than working on his SQL skills.

Well, he was undrafted so he could have made just 0.3 million per year. Anyway, it's still better to work on jump shot and make nba minimum.

From that thread:

>>i googled it and it says i have to list the columns explicitly, but there are 57 columns.

We will see lots of this guy in the coming months ... in addition to 57 columns in his tables, don't forget that he has 1 table per entity as opposed to 1 table with 1 row per entity and every single SQL statement that he will ever run will require dynamic sql ....

Now there's an excuse I'm sick of hearing from developers at work:
"It worked the last time I ran it, so there can't be anything wrong with my code. There must be something wrong with the server."

True. The average DBA can shoot free throws better than Shaquille O'Neal: 47% for the season, 37% in the playoffs, and 29% in the finals.

My mind went through a number of suitable responses to that comment but I eventually decided to ignore it.

DTS can be used in a similar way.

The only thing wrong with the server is that it lets him log on.

He's very handy for keeping your post count up.

No matter how many times you explain something, he will not understand, and ask for more help.
