re: Fixing relational DB mistakes: wrong keys VIEW POST


When I see something like this, I get a very strong inner urge to run as far away as humanly possible and hide under the next rock. These things are no fun, I've been in similar situations myself, sometimes it cannot be avoided. Thanks for the thorough explanation.


We avoided making this change for literally years because it was too hard. But once we sat down and mapped out how we could pull it off without taking the system down, it turned out it wasn't so bad. Definitely a lot of work, but it will let us alleviate many different pain points for our users. And package it for the cloud.
