davidqql对scottambler说: Thanks, I know the style will affect the model, but as you know, the main problem on modeling is to find a way to check it. Are there some rules for such issue?(2002/03/11 10:15)
scottambler对415918说: The object folks and the data folks need to work together. That's often a leading cause of failure when they don't. I've written a fair bit about this at www.sdmagazine(2002/03/11 10:15)

scottambler对lzhihua说: more complicated than they need to be. Many developers will focus on "a really cool" thing that they like to work on and overbuild as a result.(2002/03/11 11:24)
