re: What have you crashed? VIEW POST


In my early days, I learned (...eventually...) that complicated SQL queries with incomplete JOIN conditions on large data sets in production = non-responsive server = angry customers.

Fast forward to today, I insist that the IT department provide a dev/staging server which mimics production knowing full well that a runaway query (or never-ending loop, or recursive function with a misplaced terminal condition, or ...) can happen to anyone from time to time. Even the best of us! :)
