You're pretty smart for somebody with such a low post count!

No, you're never too old to Yak'n'Roll if you're too young to die.

I wonder if Nigel Rivett is somehow related to a user whose login was "NR". May be they are twins, or colleagues or something

In any case, congratulations, Nigel.

Every time I see your name, I think of Nigel Short. Pretty soon, I will get to a point where, when I see Nigel Short's name anywhere, I will think of Nigel Rivett.

No mystery - it happens if you create a new account and stop using the old one.
Actually I spend a lot of time debating with myself and criticising my work so it could have been handy.

I'm mellowing a bit in my old age and allowing people to do fairly silly things which I would have been abrasive about in my youth.
Funny that it makes the systems more difficult to maintain and inefficient but the clients seem happier - which unfortunately makes it more difficult to end contracts.
Being right too quickly often isn't appreciated.

ps there's no space in nigelrivett.

==========================================
Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
SSIS can be used in a similar way.
