For the record, I didn't choose anything ***yet***, whatever I choose
will be my decision,
and it will be based on many more opinions than your own. If yours is
all I get, then I will
probably deal with it in a manner that suits our business model. To
affirm one thing, just
because you think things are braindead, doesn't mean they are. I have
been doing database
work for over 15 years, and with many more than mysql and postgres.
Just because you
think you have all of the answers does not imply you have the answers
for everyone, your
sheer arrogance and demeanor betray any offerings of logic that one
could possibly gleen
from your insight. Sir, from another standpoint, and not even giving
you the benefit of
good or bad, I say, I believe quite rightly, your approach and arrogance
to be, it is a shame,
you may even be right, but your tact SUCKS. I do believe, you my
acquaintance are in fact
braindead. Go admire yourself in the mirror.
