Marshall,

Try my description:
"The relational model comprises a collection of features useful for constructing large unpredictable state machines from small predictable state machines"

  1. Is that statement true of false?
  2. Is it a good descriptor?
  3. Should I be calling other people idiot on the strength of such a statement?

Marshall are you able to answer these questions? Of course anyone else should feel free to answer as well. Received on Thu Jun 29 2006 - 14:55:47 CDT
