comment Why is most SQL written in YELLING?
This is not true. The link you provide states very clearly (sic), in the very 5.2 section: "15)For the purposes of identifying <key word>s, any <simple Latin lower case letter> contained in a candidate <key word> shall be effectively treated as the corresponding <simple Latin upper case letter>."

comment SQL IN() versus OR
@MCP_infiltrator There is no need to post identical question at DBA.SE, JNK has answered it (and you'll get similar answers there.) If you do want to move ("migrate") it there though, you can always flag it (your question) mentioning in the comment box what you want. The mods will take care.

You can also (safely - unless some ORM requires single-column primary keys) remove the wires.id and contacts.id as the (part_id, part_type_id) combination will be enough for uniquely identifying a part.

comment A Class named Class?
"klass" means you are German (or Dutch), "clazz" is more like "jazz" and "cls", oh, wasn't this used for "CLearScreen" ?

comment How do you approach database design?
ElGringoGrande: If you have designed such databases, with hundreds of concurrent users and millions of rows in the tables and the users are happy, then you are db-guru. Perhaps you haven't realized it, yet.

comment Is there an alternative to bits?
The balanced ternary system is one of the most beautiful number systems.
