Thank God Not Everything Is Software

On an average day I’d see a comics like this, smile and walk by.  But I am currently involved in a project that makes me feel stronger about it.

Consider, for example, a client request I got a couple of days ago:

We are using the database for this project, right?  We are using it for a reason – to store data.  If we store data, we should be able to retrieve data.  So I want a report that retrieves data.  I want a report with all data, all on a single page.  But it shouldn’t be too much or too complicated.

Funny?  Well, I laughed at first too.  But when I actually managed to build that report, I had a few things to think about.  And a few to reconsider.
