Comment Re:Indeed, THERE IS NO SILVER BULLET (Score 1) 395

I've worked w/ 2 or 3 apps written w/ database abstraction in mind. They use BLOB's in all the table columns and the middleware handles the referential integrity.

1. Performs like CRAP
2. Good luck debugging when you have an issue, especially when your primary key, aka acct number is hidden in a BLOB column causing issues at the db level.

Oh... and these folks were self-proclaimed geniuses.

Comment Walmart not as well-run as believed... (Score 1) 272

I wouldn't step foot in a Walmart where I live. Crowded... cluttered aisles... dirty. But a place I visit in WV where the Walmart has no competition... its clean, very organized and very Target-like. It seems when they get serious about their business, they do fine. I would be worried if I was Amazon.

Mgt: "Quick... mock up some electric-car to help w/ our plea for bailout money so they don't think we're not forwarding-thinking w/ inept management".

Anyone who falls for this trick deserves the billions being thrown down the tubes. Inept management coupled w/ a draconian union equals insolvency.
