Data, data, data

And more data
Data filling my head
Data spilling out and flowing onto the floor
Data searing their images onto my retinas

Databases, spreadsheets, flatfiles
Comma delimited, tab delimited, fixed format
Columns and rows
Indexes and views

SQL, sequel, ess-kew-ell
Queries taking seconds, minutes, hours
How long will it take?
No one knows, but I need the answer!
