Re: Tom LaRock (b / t)
What are nine (9) problems that I have encountered, that have nothing to do with disks?
This is one of my banes. I usually hear a combination of, "We're just making a prototype now, we'll clean it up later" and "Oh, that's already working in production, it doesn't need our attention". Those two excuses, paired together, hide a magnitude of sins. The result can be a shoddy system design held together using hacks, duct tape, and user workarounds.
While I love working with databases, they are not my only passion. I am also a huge believer in retiring early, having enough money to pay for my (future) child to go to college, and being able to work only when I choose to. In essence, I am a big believer in knowing about personal finance.
As a result, I have a list of tips and tricks about personal finance, investing, economics, and risk. I want to protect myself and my family from what may be happening in the future. I also want to know the best way to invest the savings I can scrape together from each paycheck.
So, along with SQL Server and database posts, I'll also be doing blog posts on topics ranging from personal finance, to investing, to economics. Stay tuned!Permalink
