Meme Monday

This Meme Monday is hosted by Tom Larock (blog|twitter) and the subject is the worst way you have ever been asked for help.

Well my last project had some nightmarish moments, like getting called at midnight for a minor problem, or having a 2 am conference call.

But one developer really took the cake with the question-“the database is slow”. After looking at wait stats and finding nothing (it turned out to be a network/app issue-too many round trips), I gave the instance more memory. And wrote back saying I thought it was an app problem.

His response-“did you increase the performance in the database yet?”
