was that the left or right outer join? or the less useful, but symmetrical,
full outer join? on good days, I can even tell the difference between 2NF
and BCNF and discuss the subtle joys of update anomalies.

However, database programming still bores me utterly. Fortunately, there are
people in this world who actually seem to enjoy it, as well as business
computing. Personally, I find discussions of the uses of fuzzy logic in
anti-lock brake systems algorithms more entertaining.
