Very well said Noon ..i must agree with you wholly..who cares who wins the intellectual debate .everybody has a personal life to cater too .

lets assume Howard loses maybe becoz of rich superior presentation skills does that make a difference to me perhpahs not i would still read what howard writes because of gift for writing in PLAIN english

what if richard foote (richard no offence meant) says dont rebuild indexes who cares man..if the IT manager is hell bent on me rebuilding indexes i dont mind being paid for the extra time i am junior guy and have a family to feed too..

if tomorrow Howard Decides to right about DB2 admin just becoz he got sick of oracle i would read about Db2 too coz it gives me chance to enhance my knoweledge..

bottomline debate doesnt really matter ..Techno funks dont run business REAL MANAGERS do who are paid by the company ..
