10:44 AM
@SimonForsberg Well, I hadn't read the guidelines and based on some comments it seemed like the way I presented the question didn't quite fit the place. I was planning to rewrite and paste it later.
The thing is, on my part it was sort of code review but also me trying to find people to discuss something that I wasn't sure about, but also didn't feel like a very definite topic. It wasn't for instance a design pattern thing, but I also didn't feel like it was a very subjective (like style or personal preference thing).
So it was code review in the sense that I was reviewing this for a colleague of mine and had the above discussion and we couldn't resolve it, so I was curious about other people opinions.
Not usre though that it was a code review according to the site rules
@AndreasAndreou With regards to what a code review is, you can check this:
Q: What IS a Code Review?

Simon ForsbergSo, this site is called "Code Review"... What we do here is... ask for and write Code Reviews, naturally.

As for if it is allowed to be posted here according to the site rules, check here: codereview.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic
Check especially the questions below 'If you can answer "yes" to all of the following questions, then your question is on-topic for Code Review:'
As I see it, people had concerns that you were not a maintainer of the code, which it seems like you are - whether you wrote it or one of your coworkers, you seem to work in the team which has the ownership of this code
You also had a comment on your question saying "The current question title, which states your concerns about the code, is too general to be useful here." but this is just a "nice to have", it doesn't make your question a bad fit for the site in any way, it's just something we've experienced help get more attention to your question

But I've been saying that for years, haven't I?
Moderating and asking questions is so much more fun than answering them...
@Mast I don't even have to check the first time reviews any more with you guys helping.
@pacmaninbw I usually pick the questions right from the feed and visit the queues less than I used to.
And after a couple thousand reviews you don't really care about the stats either.
Haven't hit 2000 reviews yet. I think I still have one or two badges in it.
11:38 AM
@Mast Hammered.
@pacmaninbw 2119 CV reviews, 1263 FP reviews, 723 SE reviews, the rest a lot lower.
There were days when I practically lived in those queues, don't have the time for that anymore.
@Mast Are those your stats or my stats?
A thousand or so flags.
I have a thing against off-topic crap defiling our site.

@SimonForsberg I know, left a comment.
I'm hardly a Python guru though. Enough to be dangerous, far from a guru.
Also a bit stuck in the stone-age at times.
Trying to automate updating a price list that has a sub-optimal front-end. Using mouse clicks. Because who needs APIs if everything is hammered shut and all the good stuff can't be accessed except by mouse and keyboard.
So I built crap that's ugly but works. Doesn't give me a lot of expertise in how to make it shine.

I think one of the problems, which has been a problem for as long as I can remember, is the rate of unanswered questions. — Simon Forsberg 33 mins ago
That might be less of an issue than we think. A good number of these seem to be where nobody can find anything to comment on.
But nobody alone feels competent enough to say "there is nothing wrong with you code, good job".
Maybe we should organize a team to go through unanswered questions and try to collectively answer them with something like that, if we can't find anything to comment all together?
Honestly, that's why I stopped asking questions.
I started getting nitpicky answers or no answers at all, since nobody seems to find anything to comment.
It's not a problem to have unanswered questions. But there are still a lot of questions that are good questions but simply a bit harder to answer well.
Those are salvageable.
Well, going through them as a team could solve that too.
The problem isn't the unanswered questions. The problem is their rate is increasing.
If we manage to climb to 90% and stay there, that's much better than the current situation.
Now we're below it and falling.

Boo! That's a lot of unanswered questions.
@Hosch250 @Mast My unanswered questions are probably too long and involved, only the more experienced reviewers could answer them in any case.
The most experienced members on the site can't ask questions about their primary languages because most people won't be able to answer them.
That's the risk of being among the best
But those can learn by answering the harder questions
Not necessarily on fields they're primarily interested in, but it's still something.

Either way, for a question to be considered as answered, all it needs is an answer with a positive score.

Populating what by list?
@pacmaninbw How big do you think your database could get, millions of records?
@dfhwze It's a personal library system, I have or had before I moved more than 2000 books. I figure a good limit would be about 10,000 records.
@pacmaninbw I haven't gone through all SQL yet, but have you included views or queries that you want to run on this schema, and preferrably at high performance?
I currently have a partial list of only the science fiction and fantasy books that is in excel, it contains almost 400 books. There are queries that I want to run with high performance, one of the goals is to be able to search the database for a particular book by phone while at a book store.
3:12 PM
It's crucial to list in the question which queries you want optimized for performance. Else it would not make much sense to advise you which indices are important and which ones just take up space.
When I created the C# tool version I had to add some queries and some couldn't be used. The list of requirements are in an excel file at github.com/pacmaninbw/ExperimentSimpleBkLibInvTool.

I guess another temp table would be the easiest way.

Q: Script to Backup Data to Remote Location. The data to backup depends on the day of the week

HarlanI have a script that I wrote, and I'm sure that there is a better way to do it, but can't for the life of me figure it out. Here is the problem statement: I need to backup data to a remote location, but what actually gets backed up depends on what day of the week it is. I have a program that cre...

@dfhwze Not that it matters to your review because that was based on the existing database implementation, but I did find myself putting most of the data validation into the C# code. Yes I should have designed the user interface first. Some of the stored procedures would either not have been written or would have been simplified.
@CaptainObvious Oh right, still no hammer...

Q: Is this method sufficient for escaping strings for use in SQL to prevent SQL injection attacks?

ekolisprivate static string Quote(string value) { return "'" + value.Replace("'", "''") + "'"; } It looks really simple and I can't think of a way to exploit it but I could be wrong... If this is not sufficient, how could I improve it? I know the best practice is to use parameterized queries but...

@pacmaninbw The main issue in your db design is determining the PK, followed by naming conventions of fields
7:44 PM
@dfhwze I don't know if this is true for all database systems, but MySQL forces a numeric primary key on each table. That might not have been my first choice for some of the tables. The Author Table is expected to be searched a lot, mostly by author name, and there are authors with the same last name such as Frank Herbert and his son Brian Herbert. I used FK to indicate foreign keys in tables. Are you complaining about the camel case names (that has been discussed here before).

My brother once asked me if there was a function to produce a calendar grid from a list of dates in Google Sheets. I replied with a single-cell formula that took in a list of dates and outputted a calendar. It used SEQUENCE(), REGEXMATCH(), and a double-nested ARRAYFORMULA(), and it locked up the browser for 15 seconds every time it ran. I think he learned a lot about asking me things.
@RMunroe lol
You asked for other Pythonic criticisms; you handle the empty case unsorted is None by returning [] rather than None. If your client code always expects to get a list returned that's generally good, but if you want to preserve None then that doesn't do that. (For example unsorted = None might signal that this customer-id was not found/joined in some table, and it might or might in fact be non-empty list, just it's currently not available). It's really up to you to define those sort of semantics. CodeReview.SE is a better place for code reviews — smci 33 secs ago

@Peilonrayz: clearly I'm perfectly aware that the code doesn't work, as both my comment repeating the two-year-old solution show (handle the unhandled case a == pivot). Once OP fixes that, this is fodder for CodeReview.SE (per my main comment, and the OP's version I just edited out where they asked for other comments on the code) — smci 49 secs ago

Q: C++ - List of function pointers in class

somerandomguyI am making my own programming language. I made classes (like 'string' or 'int) that derive from the object class. I am making standard types like string and int so I have a base I can work off (expand my language with itself if that makes sense). Each standard type has a unordered_map of functio...

Q: How can I define a 1D matrix having spherical harmonics as its elements?

Delaram NematollahiI am trying to write a one-dimensional matrix in which the elements are spherical harmonics. The difficult part about it is that two of the four spherical harmonics variables need to remain symbolic so that I can use them late in different calculations. I am new to python so sorry if this is a s...
