That was one long thread, and the introduction was very interesting, but it was a bit over my head. I didn't finish the thread. From the punny and ironic tone I could not figure out whether the OP was for or against GUIDs (I think he was for them), but it did set a lot of thought processes in motion, and I sort of see the point about data integrity being "built in" using compound keys, while flexibility is the most when using GUIDs (or something like that). I really need to buy a book (I saw a few names in the thread) on this stuff at some point, though I should tell you I'm coding for fun as a hobby (and doing a simple dB now) rather than as a profession.
