Things that annoys me

  • UserNumber column that is not a number (Phone Number are excluded because of long familiarity). I don't care how you think, BobIsYourUncle does not belong in a UserNumber column.
  • XMLish files. They looks like XML, sometimes they are XML, but they can be not XML. They can be not XML in interesting ways, too.
  • Database with more more tables than most tables has rows (really)! I couldn't understand why openning the list of tables tooks so long, so I run a "select count(*) from dba_tables", the under came back as a 5 digits number.
