Work-related haiku
I so have to stop putting off this design document. I've now written it in haiku:

baselining sucks now;
after major redesign,
should be much faster

process on disk;
reading into memory
just wasting space

data in sql -
index by primary keys,
process in order.

each row is compared
against the current row in
the other table

if less than, an add
if greater than, a delete
if equal, a change.

For an encore

For an encore, you need to write haiku about Scniederman's 8 Golden Rules of UI design, and possibly a haiku about Third Normal Form. Well, I just thought of a limerick on third normal form:

There was a young man from Cape Horn
His data all in third normal form
His computer did swap
Till the disk heads did stop
And alas, the backup tapes were all torn
