    Had to stir up some long dormant brain cells for this question.

    It brings back the days when I was first introduced to relational databases and coding user interfaces to them.

    If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

    Great question????!!!!!

    How is knowing this going to help me in my career?

    Please let's avoid pointless questions like this in future! It was pointless, quite literally, for me since I got it wrong. I wasn't going to have a go but I felt I needed to in order to get into the discussion!

    Rant over.

    Had no idea, took a random stab in the dark and got it right 🙂

    It was a bit of fun, like all of the questions. Some of them question you on useful information, some less so. Does it really matter?

    As I write, the answers are running 52% correct. Kind of makes me wonder why 48% can't use Google. I had to, as I must have killed off those brain cells in the 90's. :hehe:

    (Maybe this reads a little less confrontational/sarcastic if I had used "didn't" instead of "can't". More like what I intended.)

    Maybe some of those 48% are sure they knew the right answer, so they didn't use Google - and then they were wrong?

    Or maybe they think that using Google for the QotD is a sort of cheating?

    For the record, I was able to cross off four of the answer options without off the top of my head, then had to use Google to confirm my suspicion about which of the two remaining answers was the right one.

    I thought the emoticon would indicate that I was attempting a bit of humor. Sorry if it seemed serious.

    If they were "sure" and got it wrong, wouldn't it have been better to consult another source?

    [Or maybe they think that using Google for the QotD is a sort of cheating?

    I definitely can see both sides of that way of thinking. Pride makes you want to be able to answer a question from your own memory/knowledge. I get that.

    However, I've had a lot of different jobs in my life: Banker, Stock Broker, Navy Officer, DBA, Salesman, Programmer, Customer Service Manager,etc. If I had had to do those jobs with only the knowledge I had in my head, I would have been fired from every one of them. Instead, I brought a core set of knowledge, learned the rest along the way, and relied heavily on other people or sources of information for help. Did I earn my pay? I'd like to think so. My employers never seemed to care how I knew the answers to a problem - only that it got solved. I bring the same approach to answering the QotD.

    I didn't intend to get this philosophical on a Monday. But, there you are.

    I didn't use Google, as I didn't know and didn't care, so I just picked an answer at random so I could get to the discussion!

    I see your point, and in a job of course you would use google and other references to perform to the best of your abilities. But to me, the QOTD is just a bit of fun, so if I get it wrong then it's not the end of the world. If it's something that is relevant, then after answering I may go off and research it. But I always answer from my head rather than using reference materials.
