Hey, watch that stuff!
I am not now, and never have been, a COBOL programmer (card carrying or otherwise).
But I am 60 years old. My brain works almost as well as it did when I was 20. And my knowledge base is better.

Aside from that, "we prefer to manage integrity in the application" is probably the ultimate stupid database trick. Received on Sat Jun 19 2004 - 11:09:44 CEST
