Silicon is not normally magnetic (you can make it so by doping it with other types of atoms though).

He might as well have named his company "Nonsense Corporation". Plenty of those out there.

Just an idea that struck me this very moment. When passed the criterias of twit, and passed supertwit; all there is left is an OMG category?

People are surprising. Just when you think you’ve seen the worst, a new champion arises to prove you wrong.

I thought that was a clever category

Is he for real? Let me se if I understood the code...

1) He builds a string dynamically
2) He then opens a command window and echoes to text to a file
3) This is repeated for all records

Am I missing something here?

Kalman Toth’s arrogance reminds me of Joe Celko or Fabian Pascal, but without their database knowledge, writing ability, or intelligence to back it up.

Precisely why I said dbdebunk, something about his speech made me think of Fabian, and although an annoying person, this one's a bit lost!

Neither do I, although I don’t always agree with Joe Celko.

I'm just saying that if you are going to be arrogant, you need to have something to be arrogant about, other than the world's worst training videos.

Considering the number of training videos available, being able to lay claim to the worst in the world might be seen as an accomplishment in itself.

I can live with data disappears

1) The server crashes 5-6 times per day.
2) It is a known bug.
3) A hotfix exists.
4) Will not install it.
5) Wait for next service pack.
