VC, Cimode is not trying to introduce a new logical data model.

However, he seems unable to communicate sensibly in english. For instance, he keeps referring to bidimensionality of a physical representation of a row when that is basically meaningless to the anglophones according to the definitions of the terms he uses, and he has made absolutely no effort to try to define the terms he is using.

I asked him point blank why he thought the linearity of the address space had any bearing on the dimensionality of the table, and he ignored the question. I don't think he understands enough english to participate effectively.

His posts are extremely wordy and nonsensical. If he had a better grasp of the language, I think he would communicate more succinctly and make more sense.

Instead of trying to find better (ie. accurate and succinct) vocabulary, he just keeps repeating the nonsense. Received on Sat Jun 03 2006 - 18:25:20 CDT
