Thanks for the reference that is a great article.

One bullet point in the article that gave me a laugh appeared under the section about doing performance analysis to determine if it's really bad database design that is causing issues.

"-A poor database design that forces unnecessary joins."

Boy, what a powder keg that statement is...

I know its important to denormalize in situations that demand performance, but is that really an explosive statement.

Just curious . . . thanks.
