Getting rid of roaches is called bug fixing. Deployment rollouts are more like reattaching the crank handle - wooden sockets don't exactly have long lives you know.

So when you guys say that [our database] is down for deployment, in reality it means turning the whole thing upside down and shaking it to get the roaches out?

Mez -

[our database] is a decorative accessory for the home - all working parts are entirely made of wood, except for a silverware crank handle with paste sapphires attached.

At least, last time I looked at the spec that's what it was.

Looks like what we should be aiming for [our database]' 5th anniversary is Decorative Accessories for the Home, composed of Wood and Silverware and decorated with Sapphires. I see a beautifully hand-crafted copyholder with attached bookmarker myself, but there are sure to be other excellent suggestions.
