That Phil Phreak

Simple Talk is a site I've been reading for a few years. I started when I had to do some work with SQL Server, moving an application to DB2. I don't have SQL Server here, being just linux, but I still follow it and will play along from time to time when the subject doesn't require SQL Server syntax. A new piece deals with set based solutions to data problems. While it doesn't use BCNF data, just one table, it is an amusing exposition. More than a few bon mots at record oriented programming; warms my heart.

The author is one I'm not familiar with, but the original instigator is Phil Factor, an anonymous DBA/developer who could be me if I lived in London, spoke real English, and spent my time with SQL Server.
