  • you're just different. ;)

    I do find you pretty abrasive on IRC, though. You're obviously very talented and smart, but you lack patience to deal with those of us who are less talented/smart. And when you lose your patience, you do come off as a jerk.

    Since you wish for openness, I'm taking that as an approval to publish a snippet of our conversation, where we had a disagreement about normalization:

    15:46 <Purdy> but no one uses WHERE
    15:46 <Purdy> it's not supported in the current SQLite
    15:46 <rjbs> ...
    15:46 <rjbs> are you fucking on drugs?
    15:46 <rjbs> SQLite supports WHERE.
    15:46 <Purdy> i'm not saying that
    15:46 <Purdy> i'm saying there are only two testing methods
    15:46 <Purdy> emails() and clear()
    15:46 <rjbs> The code you're looking at is code that ONLY DELIVERS.
    15:46 <Purdy> right
    15:46 <Purdy> Send/Sender
    15:46 <rjbs> The code to get data OUT of the SQLite database is not in there.
    15:47 <rjbs> So saying "it can't use WHERE" is ridiculous

    I think some of the issue lies in the your "operating frequency" (typing speed, thinking speed, etc) being exponentially higher than mine. I suggest, though, that you could be more accommodating towards others.

    Now let me go write this up in my blog! ;)
