I’ve grown up reading Tom Clancy and probably most of you have at least seen Red October, so this book caught my eye when browsing used books for a recent trip. It’s a fairly human look at what’s involved in sailing on a Trident missile submarine…
I get a lot of email at SQLServerCentral.com on a variety of topics. Complaints about my writing, comments on the site, problems, etc. But there are a couple things I don’t understand. The first is the amount of stuff submitted through our problem report page.
It plainly says in large red letters that if you have a SQL question, click a link and post a question in the forums. But I still get lots of SQL questions sent through and I have a standard signature setup that asks people to post in the forums that I send back.
The second thing that amazes me (apart from the all caps) is this type of question:
PLESE HELP ME HOW TO MAKE IT AND SEND ME TOTAL INFORMATION ABOUT SQL SERVER 2000
. YOU CAN SEND ME THE DEVELOPER OF SQL SERVER 2000 AND SO MORE INFORMATION .
THIS PROJECT IS VERY URGENT SO PLS SEND ME ALL THE INFORMATION
How can this even be a question you ask someone? Either this is an assignment from academia or some project from work, but in either case, if you need this much help urgently, perhaps you should seek employment or study elsewhere.
