Sometimes a simple question like What is interim table? can initiate a never-ending discussion between developers. I experienced this recently while I was on phone helping my friends working in Los Angeles. In a conference call, one of the developers kept on talking about first interim table and second interim table and so forth, while another developer was of the opinion that that there cannot be more than one interim table. Well, as this was not enough a third developer interrupted the debate and said that all the tables are interim tables. The heated discussion seemed never ending.
