JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [perlmonks.org], and here [javajunkies.org] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [blogspot.com] and my other blog [blogspot.com]. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

I finally have development access at my place of employment.

This means that I can finally get the prototype of my credit-card CGI in place. I didn't manage to secure database access for it, but I'm trying to convince others that it would be a good thing. I'm kind of paranoid about keeping this stuff in text files -- I'd really like to use postgres, but I don't even think they have that here -- but if it's how it has to be done, it's how it has to be done.

(And now, the statement that has been appended to virtually every explanation of every dirty solution ever...)

It's only an interim solution.

  • If you work for a public traded corporation, ask how using plain text files is going to affect the corporation in light of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

    If it's not publicly traded, there are some big selling points for privately held companies to be Sarbanes-Oxley compliant.

    1) You can use it as a marketing ploy, "We are Sarbanes-Oxley compliant!".
    2) "But boss, just think of the increased profit if a publicly traded company wants to acquire us!"
    3) etc...
