With poorly labeled cables in a tiny space, you might accidentally plug two ethernet cables from the main switch into the downstream switch. I suppose that could also happen on a multi-interface end device, though outside of dual-homed static IP servers, I can't recall running across that situation.

I can't tell if you're agreeing with him or not or ... ?

Most cities were founded after the invention of the railroad. Most of the growth of cities was post-automobile era, however. Certainly after the early 20th century industrialization.

In general, it is bad form to peek under the sheets in the database. However, it could be extremely useful to tie a trigger to a primary key + address for these specific cases. The database should also not block on it if there is no DML or DDL going on -- just piping to a message queue or executing an external script or whatever.

Blue-skying. It's still early, here.
