Nearly any SQL topic presented at times in a slightly eclectic manner.

I can't believe I fell for this

Given the site, and the date, I should have realized that it was a joke. But I literally just spent the last 15 minutes preparing to lambaste the poster until I looked at all of the comments (I didn't want to repeat was someone said). I am such a dope..

if you had known that more than 15 years ago, disk drives moved off CHS to LBA, to implement constant areal density, for improved disk capacity, allowing outer tracks to have more sectors,

but then considering some of the database architectures + hardware implementations I have seen, a filing cabinet and one hundred clerks would heve been cheaper and faster

LOL! From the comments: It doesn't need any security. The database is so fast the bad guys can't keep up.

Yes, this was a perfect April Fool's post. It was stated with such ferver and conviction that I thought this person was serious...boy do I feel like a schmoo..

Agree Joe about the filing cabinet and clerks being faster with some of what I've encountered...I've even seriously suggested it!

About James Luetkehoelter

I am passionate about what I do - which is DBA, development, IT and IT business consulting. If you don't know me, haven't met me or have never heard me speak, I'm a little on the eccentric side. One attendee recently described me as being "over the top". Yup, that about says it - because I only speak on topics that I'm passionate about.
