When Design Goes Bad, and The ‘One table to Rule Them All!’

Via an interesting article from Joe Celko on bad practices in database design and the horrors of EAV (Entity-Attribute-Value) tables, there is a link to a great read on the ultimate ‘One table to Rule Them All’!  I find this tale very pertinent as I once did a short stint at a company with ‘start’ in their name, that had created a design with a single table for static data (although no where near as bad as the one described in ‘Bad CaRMa’).
