phoenix said:Too many professors and database people say "sequel" for SQL. Especially MS people. Seems the "unofficial" name for SQL Server is "sequel server". So, what was the prequel server?
Damn it people, it's SQL, as in "ess kew el". It's not "sequel". There's no "e" in there.
I tried to get people to call it "squeal", since that's what the letters sounds like if you read it as a word. And it just fits so much better. Especially when talking about "MS squeal server". None of my MS-loving fellow students seemed impressed.
