Today, I had occasion to add a comment to a stored procedure. Can you tell exactly how happy I was about it?
-- -- IMPORTANT!!!!! -- -- This procedure has been replaced with **name witheld** -- -- Any modifications made to this procedure will not take effect in the live -- system. You'd be wasting your time, just like I did today and let me tell -- you, it's really, really annoying to put the effort into changing a -- deprecated procedure becuase nobody though to put a comment in, or better still -- to remove the procedure altogether. -- Of course, the logical thing to do would be to make the changes to the -- existing code rather rather than complicate matters with a new procedure, -- but then that would be too sensible, wouldn't it? --
