Thats is very considerate of you to say that but I assure you, not deserved. Unfortunately, I wish I had such a good opinion of myself. The problem when trying to clarify a computing model that would deliver what a TRDBMS is supposed to deliver, is that one quickly runs into mathematical questions that require a mathematical responses that are both coherent with relational algebra but not only. On the last few years, I have determined some solutions calling for help a broader range of mathematical tools, but an entire realm of questions I have not answered and doubt I will some day. Which is why I revised my ambition and decided to build a core that would allow reasonable people to ask the right questions instead of me and maybe answer them at a later time. I have ran into some problems that Steve Tarin probably ran into while designing the TRM and tried to avoid the traps he probably fell into. So far I have determined the precise fundamental reason why TRM was doomed to failure: it explores the concept of data independence logical representation but does not characterize the traps in which it is important not to fall.
I have some satisfaction because I have the mathematical probabilistic proof that any direct image implementation fundamentally necessarily consumes more resources a non direct image system but not for the reasons we usually imagine. Subsequently to this formal demonstration, I have worked at designing a logical representation of data layer that includes the discoveries and brings innovative perspective onto relation operation and manipulation . But the more I dig into unknown waters, the more I realize how limited is the time to solve these issues. I sometime feel lonely into this effort and wish I could have a helping hand. So I delude myself into the hope of finding men of reasonnable and good faith on Usenet to verify my proof and eventually point out and correct my mistakes.

Quite frankly, I am highly skeptical about the *multidimensional* fancy aspect of science. As far as I am concerned, cautious and linear progress of science is a guarantee of soundness. In such tedious process, one *may* run into interesting discoveries but that is the exception not the rule.

I will keep that in mind. Thanks. Received on Mon Mar 03 2008 - 14:15:29 CET
