    Other than guessing or assuming otherwise, how could someone derive the sql backend based on webpage examination ?

    Curious.

    We do announce things periodically and this is more of a question that rewards those long time members rather than is a learning experience.

    Not sure when we'll go to 2008. We aren't bleeding edge, as we need this site to work, but I'll see if we can make some upgrade late this year or possibly early next year.

    I have to admit, I was tempted to answer "Access", just for the humor of it. 🙂

    Ah well, I thought that as Steve Jones has only been 'working with SQL Server through all versions up to 2000. ' I assumed that meant the site was still in 2k... :s

    It was really logical (Oracle,MySQL,Access logically out) + guess between (MSSQL 2K and 2K5)...

    and My guess paid me 5 point reward 😀

    As ncprBill8 asked, I also curious to know if is there any way to find the way to find back-end from website?

    Not if the website is competently designed and implemented, I reckon. If I can work out the SQL version by looking at the website I can probably break its security pretty easily.
