What I need in a database is place where I can persist and retrieve data. Those are my requirements — let me persist data somewhere, then let me get it back when I need it, in the form that I need it. Relational databases — whoops, I mean SQL databases — have allowed me to do this for years. And how exactly can that be so bad?
Dear Fabian uses these quotes as a supposed method of pointing out stupidity, but I utterly and completely stand by everything in the quote above. What I said was true then, it is now, and it will be in the future no matter how much Fabian wishes it not to be so.
Something even cooler: I’m number six on Google for “Fabian Pascal.” Fabian has been fantastic for my traffic.
