Hello Jon,

Well I once worked with a certain company in the financial field whose Windows programmers were constantly complaining about how "slow" the iBM i was in returning result sets. Turned out the real problem was they were retrieving a million plus rows which they planned to display to the user for their selection! They apparently thought that was reasonable.

Hah, that reminds me about a former employment, when the PHP-Guy was complaining that the database was sooo slow, because page load times were sooo high.

Turned out that he still had debugging turned on, so a page was crammed with HTML comments containing SQL statements and other funny stuff. With a lot of information presented per page, the browser had to gnaw through about 1MB HTML code (without auxiliary stuff like graphics) which also needed to be downloaded before — that's why external employees also complained.

:wq! PoC
