Ooooh, deary me, you all have gotten hot and botherated about this little item!

I have heard systems people talk about the architecture of a system (computer or database) and I'm sure they meant just that, architecture (all the bits and bytes as they relate to each other and the querries posed to the system), and not design. To us laymen it may seem a silly nuance, and when I talk about the architecture of a building (and not terribly knowledgably, I admit), I'm talking about something more than its design.

And yes, using architect as a verb is a bit much, just now.

(more dessert needed)
