Probably a little OCD on my part, but when colleagues write SQL keywords in lowercase

    @Archimedyz Don't you have two? :). On a serious note, there's an older chap and he presses Caps Lock to do it...

    @Archimedyz Only I trust the other shift but not the other ctrl or alt!

    Sorry, I'm one of those bastards too. Simply because I don't like holding the shift key. For some reason I only use the right shift, that left one is janky.

    @bp85 I actually don't use my left pinky finger at all to type, broke it years back and never got it set right so I don't have full range of motion to reach.

    Pfft.. thats nothing. When you see mysql tables with all field names using caps, thats fucked up.

    @cahva Or even worse, when people combine tables and mix between lower, upper, space and underscores from field to field!!! Current client is a major bank in London and we aggregated how many variations of the field 'account number' they send us in data extracts - 19!!! And one of their rules is we have to keep the field names the same as the raw data!!

    @bp85 I think the fragility of banking systems, particularly legacy ones, would astound and petrify most people. This sounds very typical, but also very scary.

    @samk Terrifying. This isn't even an ancient system, it was online 2008 to 2015.

    I'm a lowercase kind of guy. It's not required and it looks retarded.

    @Shylor It may be up to a company convention.
