Database Object Name Refactoring with VS 2005 DB Pro – A good name is better than precious ointment.

"A good name is better than precious ointment." - Old Testament.

All I can say is that they must have had some mighty fine ointment back then.

As a matter of fact, just the other day as my wife was layin' down a heathly slathering of Desitin, I couldn't stop from interjecting, "Honey, A good name is better than precious ointment." To which she replied, "I got several choice names for you, buster, if you don't get over here and give me a hand with YOUR son!"

She never fails to spoil an anecdote.

Well, all you refactoring animals out there are gonna love Visual Studio Database Professional Refactoring support. It sure beats precious ointment. So check out this cool demo using CTP3.

    regarding the ointment,

    actually, the phrase relates to oil.

    as in "tov shem tov me-shemen tov"(hebrew) when shem means name and shemen means oil; the word game is obvious, the oil is probably olive oil which originates in the medeterenian area, same as the old testiment.
