comment Production-safe SQL stored procedure debugging
I disagree, stored procedure are the best place for this kind of complex database logic. They are easier to preformance tune and easier for the dba to knwo what is affected by proosed changes to the data model and far more secure (if you aren't useing dynamic sql) because you can prevent direct access to tables and views. In a financial application, not to use stored procedures means your application is very open to internal fraud.

If I could only get that darn mind-reader module to work, all would be fine.

comment What hat should a programmer not wear?
And if you get the sysadmin hat, they may stick you with the facilities manager hat too which is to be avoided at all costs.

comment How should older programmers respond when interviewed
I'd be tempted to say, "My lawyer will be delighted that you asked that." (I wouldn't, but I also wouldn't accept a job at such aplace either unless I was destitute.) Utterly stupid to ask such a question and then give the guy a way to sue you if he doesn't get hired.

Actually I'm pretty sure it is an illegal question.
