> a brief primer on relational databases?

A method of representing data using following general rules so that it is "easy" to process:

  1. Store data in tables.
  2. Each table has rows.
  3. Each row in a table has the same fields (ie ID, Name, Age, SS#, Friend1_ID, Friend2_ID)
  4. A row's field (ie Friend1_ID) could reference another row of same or different table.
