> I find it very strange that you don't do this yourself in order to convince everyone. You are of course under no obligation to do so, but given that it would immediately dispel these 'misconceptions' that your query syntax is horrifically verbose, I see no reason why you would not take the bull by the horns as it were.

:) Because then my threads would be exactly one post long and the unfamiliarity with the db + LISP-like script + the even longer amount of SQL script with mind-numbing number of joins would never be read past a few lines, especially since I am an idiot talking about some NULL-less, auto-normalizing, no schema required, yet queryable, AI-ish db that fits on a floppy thingy!

Actually if you search old posts, you will see at times I have done exactly that when the model/implementation was less developed. I didn't get much feedback. To realize what is going on, one has to go thru some steps. I am trying to take someone thru those steps. I didn't arrive where I am overnight. It was a slow process of many years just focusing on this problem night and day and you want to get it all in one post. Is there anything to which I claim or have I simply gone crazy :) Received on Sun Apr 16 2006 - 22:00:36 CDT
