Steve Jones: Sorry to have placed you and SearchSQLServer in a defensive position. I only noticed tonight,
I included the wrong reference by using linuxreview. I meant to use wikipedia.org/wiki/Yottabyte. Thanks "craigpessano" for bring it to the forefront. I heard the term yottabyte and did not know the meaning nor was I positive of the spelling. So I started researching the web and had several links, which was why the wrong link was made the reference (did not pay attention to detail).
I want to thank those responders like Trader Sam, Shaun McGuile, majorbloodnock, A.K. Valley (not to be confused with A.K.A.), Lynn Pettis, Jamie Longstreet and Noffer for seeing the fun in the question and for acknowledging all four were right regardless of the reference link error.
I wonder how many of the folks that took the time to voice complaints and were upset to drop a tenth of a percent in their recorded scores, understand the tongue-and-cheek humor of the NextFlix radio adds?
I enjoy the Question of the Day, not to see how smart I am
or to be at the top of a statistic,
but to learn. I know I would have missed more than I have, if I was testing my limited experience with SQL Server. Instead, I try to determine what each question's selection needed to make it right.
Some questions take a minute and there are others where I spend up to an hour or more trying to figure out a new area the question is about (new to me). Even after spending an hour, I still get a few wrong.
Hey, you will not find me at the top, but that is not a goal I am pursuing. My goal is to learn something new each day and the Question of the Day often helps in achieving this goal.
My next question, should I take the risk,
will be using a small printed reference from an SQL Server book and see if the author is put on a steak. But, I am waiting for the okay from the author(s) for approval to use his/her/their work and if he/she/they approve the question, the reference quoted, and if the "curve" and "slider" options are worthy of being submitted for, "The Question of the Day
This has almost been as much fun
as submitting my cent-and-a-half on the side of "no images in a database" on another SQL Server website and watching the battle from afar. Even after offering up a paper from MS, where it was not a good practice to do so, there were those that remained mulish.
