Good advice for both building a house and performing a database update.
The thing that bothered me about This Old House was that Norm left out the opening bit of that statement, which in its entirety is "Think thrice, measure twice, cut once." The abbreviated version is now better known than the original.
Interesting! I had never heard the "think thrice" version. I am going to start using it from now on.
