Interesting article that I could have used in 1995 through 1998 when I worked for Pacific Simulation. Michael Blaha and Cheryl Smith, in A Pattern for Softcoded Values, describe a dtabase design pattern that they identified for industrial applications. I spent a lot of time building applications that used a much more rigid structure that ther pattern can replace. Of course, it might not be all that efficient. That was the problem I ran into when I was working there. Any data structure that could logically model the data we recorded couldn't perform very well physically.

I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…
Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…
A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
