|Edgar Codd is the big fish in relational database design.|
I studied database management long enough to realize how little I was suited for that profession, but I learned enough to be impressed with the possibilities.
A relational database stores entities and can create all kinds of useful data based on those entities. Examples of entities at a school would be lists of:
- Students and all their personal data.
|Google offices are googlesque.|
- Titles of posts
- Captions of graphics
- Biblical citations
- Google Plus
- Facebook posting of the URL
Going backwards in research is fun, too. When I posted about the nefarious and scrofulous Fox Valley WELS, I always got vicious comments. They came by email, with a time stamp, and I could see who was on the blog with software I installed on the blog.
Taking my cue from the Midway battle in WWII*, I posted a provocative statement about Fox Valley and got an comment with that area glowing red on my map. I checked on the operating system, which also showed on my software. Mac computer - that limited the author to a select few; Mac has a small share of the market, and I knew who used them. (*US intelligence posted a message about the fresh water being broken on Midway, and the Japanese used their code for Midway to relay that information. So it was clear that the US had broken their code wide open.)
Likewise, I received super-nasty comments from Garland, Texas. Who was in Garland? The original guesses were wrong, but it was home for DP-in-Waiting Don Patterson. Did he post when visiting his kin or have someone post for him? The situation was too rich to leave alone, so I voiced my concerns, and the comments disappeared.
|"Enjoy our bunnies at The Core's Easter service."|
Patterson promotes Easter by promising the kiddies live bunny rabbits to pet. I quoted that from his parish website. The next year, it appeared in a separate website, which I found by search Patterson and live bunnies. (The search for Ski and live bunnies was worse, as I revealed.) After that, the bunny posts disappeared at Easter. Doebler promoted them too, which is why he is the Larry Olson Professor of Evangelism at the portable mini-seminary in Asia.
