In practice, I've never actually seen a proper 3-tier web-based project.  To be honest, the stuff I've seen in the wild kind of scares me. 

Never, never a truer word spoken, HM.

My personal favourite is when the 3-tier project spirals out of control, creating a Frankenstein's monster that suddenly gets reclassified as n-tier simply because no one can actually define where the "tiers" start, end or how many there are.

Stormcrow, are you familiar with thedailywtf.com?  There's a thread in my alliance's forum labeled "Perhaps the purpose of your life is to serve as a warning to others."  Sadly, everyone frequents that thread often,  myself included.  thedailywtf.com is the software engineer's version of that thread.  Being a DB admin yourself, I figured you'd especially enjoy the site's latest article:

Yes, I love thedailywtf. Hadn't seen that Article though, and it was very lol :)

Thanks!
