I've decided to stop being scared of databases

@CjMalone good. now it's time for databases to be scared of you.

@qeef I just "select * from *" and loop through the result in my programming language of choice, right? :p

@CjMalone @qeef yes, I'm told database to developers barely spend any time at all figuring out how to optimise queries to run quickly

@InsertUser @CjMalone that's unfortunate shame. I think the problems should be solved in proper places. And, when using a database to store some data, the proper place is usually the database.

@qeef @CjMalone yes that was following up a :p with further sarcasm

@CjMalone @qeef that will scare your front end programming language, not your database

@amapanda @CjMalone Being a database, I would be pretty scared, too ^^

@amapanda damn, can I join it all into a single row to get lower performance?
