Yup, we still do. And we don't use database abstraction layers (much),

You know, sometimes you just want a quick page, that does something simple.
No need for scaffolding and structure and fluff. Just get some data. Print it

Shiny tools are all very well. But sometimes a good old-fashioned handheld,
manual, not whizzy flash and trousers screwdriver does the trick.
