Once in a while, I do a project whose long term implications make me want to cry [via Ben Hammersley: Hot BBC Archive Action]
Yeah well, he said a similar sort of thing about the Backstage project (which has recently, and quite rightly, taken some heavy flak for over-hype). So, here he is over-hyping a database. Possibly a moderately interesting database if you are a BBC output geek but read-only access to a database nevertheless. At least COBOL programmers had the excitement of the occasional update record.
Oh, and the screen-shot is seriously sad (in fact, it makes me want to cry).
