close enough

Sometimes I hate DBs. It's not their fault, but still....

I'm in QA these days, which means I need copies of production datasets to do my testing, but I don't need a perfectly synchronized copy, just something close enough. Try explaining that to a database server.

No, after 3 days of manic care and feeding of it's unreasonable demands, I make one silly mistake, and now I have to start all over again. Even though the data itself is so close, I must start all over. farkitall.
