9% chose 30,000 - these people should not be anywhere near a keyboard never mind a database.
31% picked 1024 - These people have no google skills.
54% - got it right which implies, as I was one of them, that I know more than some people.
6% - went for 32 these I would forgive for trying to be sensible. Like who adds more than 32 tables to a query - typing the SQL for the joins would be so fraught with risk.
Well we should all realise that putting 256 tables into a Select is a bad idea to start with anyway....
Does putting 20 tables into a view and then using 20 such views count as 400 tables or just 20?
