I couldn't understand why a new feature wasn't working after I added some fields to a table. It was driving me nuts!

Turns out I forgot I was connected to the tester's DB instead of dev.

Meanwhile the tester has no idea why their DB is sprouting fields.

I love this one, it's not one I've done (no-one else lets me connect to their DB 😁) but I can still feel the intense frustration knowing you added the fields but finding them nowhere in your dev app.

There can never be too many banners telling you what environment you are currently working with.
