How many of you practice good indexing? Many of us forget at creation

Indexing should be balanced though, because for each index added to
improve SELECT times we often reduce performance for INSERTs, UPDATEs
and DELETEs. There are several tools available to help you do database
design so that you can see potential indexes. One favorite is
