When to Modify Somebody Else’s Code

I was tagged by Brent Ozar on this question that has been floating aroung the Tweeterverse and blogosphere the last few days...

In keeping with the short-but-useful-or-amusing style of this blog:

When you have an OK in writing from the vendor or internal group that wrote it AND from the supervisor you got the approval from on your side.

Yeah...make darn sure your suggestion actually works before you even ask, do backups, keep scripts, etc.

Else you get no fries. You get fried. :)
