I think you might be underestimating the Pilot salary and expense to the airline of a plane not being in the air. A cheap 787 goes for at least $120m An A380 more like $350m. Don't forget that a significant number of passengers on the plane doing a U-turn over the Atlantic/Pacific/Indian Oceans might also have connecting flights...

Tell me what happens when there's been an infiltration attempt and Joe Bloggs user then attempts to logon - only to be told that next allowed logon attempt is in 24 hours? Or are you going to restrict by host/ip - which then restricts a whole system from logging on?

Re: Stored Procedures

But doesn't this assume that the store procedure does not pass the number of variables passed? If you did that with some usertype checking it would make it very difficult no
