This comes very close to the old computer now. I have added one line to the 'Klingon' at the top which should make it look better. The 'Romulan' is flat like a pancake. Like Griff already said, this one is harder to get right.

"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."
If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.
I'm looking at some 3rd party documentation and trying to figure out what their database platform is (I'm guessing the doc I'm looking at is some kind of Apache/Maven type affair but I'm pretty much a 100% SQLServer guy so I'm not at all sure).
1.3 Archetype Definitions (Attributes)
[Eight column table - AttributeId, Caption, Data Type, Access Type, Default Value, Supports FTS, Multiline, NotesMultiline? That sounds like a non-stop source of pleasure!]
1.4 Query/Quick Find/Sort Definition
No Query/Quick Find/Sort Information is defined
No Indexes are defined (that's always promising!)
Data types mentioned include RELATIONSHIP (please God, be a real life foreign key), DATE, BOOLEAN, STRING(n), NARRATIVE, MONEY, DECIMAL(n,n), GUID, DATETIME and AUTONUMBER (when I Googled AUTONUMBER, I just got loads of results for Access but thankfully, it doesn't seem to be that!)
Does anyone recognise the doc format or have any idea what the underlying database might be?
The doc generator certainly seems to have been inspired by that - the doc is definitely something that's been created by a tool that's been pointed at a database rather than a design that a database has been built from.
Was just kind of hoping that someone would see it and go "Ah! That looks like what you get when you point Auto-Documenter X at DB Engine Y."
"If nominated I'll decline. If drafted I'll defer. And if elected I'll resign." (Alex Salmond, a month before he became leader of the Scottish National Party). He was echoing "I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your president." -- General William Tecumseh Sherman.
I'm a little more honest than most politicos!
