nr just crossed the 1,000 post mark. As always I did a quick analysis of his posts to see what types of topics he writes about. Here are the results:

Complaining about cursors (67%)
Rewriting cursors for users (53%)
Describing the slownes of cursors (49%)
Extolling the benefits of non-cursor queries (19%)
Rewriting cursor queries to prove you don't need them (99%)

These add up to more than 100% since many posts contain multiple flavors or "cursor bashing".

Thanks for all your posts nr. Once the thrill of being a Master Smack Fu SQL Hacker fades I'll probably change your title King Cursor Basher or something similar. Thanks for helping all the users and carrying on the anti-cursor crusade.

Thanks.
Nice not to be 'aged' anymore.

Wait for my article on how to write efficient cursors.

Surprised about the 67% so I've added a signature.


Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.

A curse on these cursed cursors!!!

I have an app where I just couldn't write the query and had to resort to a cursor (eek!)
I will post the details soon and see if the Smack fu can "do the do"

Congrats nr! graz should have changed your title to "Young but Masterful SQL Wizard", or just plain yogurt (Yoda)!

P.S. - graz, can you change my title to my Yahoo! name? (people, you just don't know how appropriate this emoticon is right now!)
