Today I learned that "single source of truth" is actually a technical term.
Because I'm doing a lot of integration work right now I'm hearing it a lot and thought it was just a trendy phrase that people have been throwing around.
Turns out it's more or less official industry terminology.
(By the way ... as someone once told me ... "You learn something new every day, or you die stupid.")
Database guys are the funniest. As a philosopher, I feel right home there, with all the quirky lingo. I realized the connection far too late in my university years.
I had the weirdest prejudices about how boring database stuff was. Until I went to some lectures and fell in love.
What I relearned today: how fun it is to eat at a restaurant with philosophy profs.
Did it go anything like this?
Nope, it is more like applying technical terminology to every day life stuff. A bit like computer guys nerding out.
Database guys are some of the most rigid, inflexible people I've ever met.
SSOT isn't just a technical term for them, it's a way of life. And we're not even talking about data, we're talking about "there's ONE way to do it and don't you dare challenge my book learning with your real world pragmatism."
Oh, and TIL that there's a Pikachu somewhere in Riverdale and I'm probably going to end up making a trip there just to catch him.
I have found that relational db people fit that description however nosql people are the opposite extreme.
At least the database/information systems department here at the university is populated by the most relaxed and sympathetic guys of all the ones I have gotten to know. The theoretical informatics guys have a stick up their ass and some are outright assholes. The other departments have various degrees of stubbornness and other fugly character traits. Almost non of them is fun to deal with. The head of the operating systems department is nice and really competent, but those are rare.
Today, I learned that a Note7 can be put out by a condominium under the right conditions.
There is a difference between 'hot dog buns' and 'frankfurter buns'
Fascinating, Zoo.... And what is that difference, for inquiring minds?
I am sure you have seen both types. I thought it was each bakery had their own way of making them, I didn't know that each style had a name. Hot dog buns have more of a round or curved shape and are are sliced from the side. They look more like a sub roll. Frankfurter buns have a more squared off shape and open from the top, have more of a pocket and are more expensive.
.... The hot dog buns are brown on both sides and the top, the frankfurter roll is white on both sides and browned on the top, a crust similar to a slice of bread.
And it appears that one comes in a package of 8 while the other comes in a package of 6.
Actually the one labeled "frankfurter" simply looks like the style you'd find in New England. I've seen lobster rolls in that style.
Agree, IG, think I've mostly just seen the frankfurter type, though we've always called them hot dog buns here.
Yes, frankfurter rolls are more expensive, not only are there two less buns per package, the package of six frankfurter rolls is more expensive than the package of eight hot dog buns.
Because german engineering!
Sad thing: We don't get Frankfurter rolls here, only crappy Hotdog rolls.
misread: 'creepy hotdog trolls'
That would make a great Halloween costume.
