The changes I was debugging were to allow scaling down the report size at customer request; after years of insisting on adding more stuff to it. Roll eyes | :rolleyes:

My understanding is that they fold, spindle, and mutilate out a subset of columns containing whatever they're actually interested in at the moment; and then feed it into a stats program for a second round of folding, spindling, and mutilating in order to get a result of "we did good last year, give us another grant to keep doing this for next year".
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
