The Impotence of Checking your Spelling



  • Doing a deployment, came across this.

    From the "Reaction" module of a system that begins with "E", I bring you this lovely table:

     

    CREATE TABLE e_rections
    (

         
    r_desc varchar(50),
         
    r_type varchar(10),
         
    r_active bit,
         
    r_order int

    )

    Been working with Postgresql recently, can't say I miss RDBMSes where one has to specify the size of text fields...

    Also: TRWTF is using Word to paste code sample. Tsk tsk, Ontario people never learn.

    It's the only way I've figured out how to get the pretty colors.

    Note: If your e_rection is multi-colored, see a doctor. However, it is perfectly normal for it to be variable width.

    So you're saying fixed-width is a bad thing?

    If your width is fixed for more than an hour, please see a doctor.

    Obviously you skipped school the day when they explained showers Vs. growers... (also we now know which category you belong to!)

    So what happens in the bedroom when you, yes, you, explain 'it's just a micropenis'? "It's alright, I can't invoke your gag reflex..."?



    Just wonderin'.

    That is strictly between me and your mom.

    By the way, she'd really like if you could clean your room or at least shoot some Febreze in there, because the wallpaper in the hallway is starting to rot.

    How variable? And on the same dingaling? What if it's shaped like a vase from the 70's?

    If you can make it resemble all those different shapes, these people are recruiting.

    Which BTW, the video of the show is available on Netflix in the US.

    And by the "Law of unintended consequences", many images down, that search query suggested this link:

    You seriously think that "e_rections" was an accident? Whoever originally coded that was probably high-fiving himself for a month.
