Function performance


#22

Heh... Knuth's parable. Knuth definitely had the right idea but most people misinterpret what he said and use it as an excuse for poor table design and writing poor code both accuracy wise and especially performance wise. It's how servers end up running at 50% (which is also not the highest I've been asked to help with). All the little junk ends up being a landfill of junk and then it takes forever to fix because almost everything needs to be fixed.
