Can we talk overtime?
I was busy yesterday working on regular quarter end stuff, when a request came in that was due the next day. This was no small request. It required me running a set of queries over 120 times.
Think I'm kidding?
I had to load data for the past 10 years.... by month.... each of which requires a single query to load as there are thousands of records in each month.
10 year x 12 months = 120 queries!
See... told ya.
The thing was that was just to get the information that I needed in order to create this report. Ended up working until 9:45pm before heading home. Major blood sugar crash in the cab home as I had just fruit for breakfast and salad for lunch.
Once I got home, Brad asked me what I was working on. Now while the stuff I was doing was a lot of work, I actually in some sick sadistic way kinda enjoy it. So I was trying to explain this to Brad. Brad is not a techy guy. Listening to me rattle on about SQL code and databases he was just sitting there like..
So back at it today... made some progress and got phase 1 finished.
