I like theta style joins over ANSI style joins, I think its easier to read.

select a.*, b.*
from manufacture a, model b
where a.man_id = b.man_id
order by b.model_name

What database you using?

Gotcha.  I like MySQL, its a good database.  I mainly use Oracle here at work, but we also have a few Sybase, Informix, Redbrick, Berkley DB, MySQL, DB2, MS SQL Server.  We have a melting pot of databases, but its good experiance.  We even have an X500 system (FFEAR)!

We also have PostgreSQL which I want to use in the future but won't on this project.

What type of equipment? My Fiancee works for SquareD and does project management for them. So I aways like to see folks using SquareD equipment so that we can eat. :)

Whatever the contractor usually desides to buy.  The transformer will probably be built by Waukesha, it pretty big,  69/6.9 kV 5.75 MVA. The breaker is not small either, its for a 34.5 kV system.  I don't believe SquareD make that size of equipment.

Catching up from yesterday.  The Nobel Prize thing filled up yesterday with press conference/celebration/rapid deployment of AV gear and poster printing.

Despite all this I've decided there's never a bad time to win the Nobel Prize.

Tonight I've penciled in some garage time and I want to watch Top Gear.  I could be lured out for $0.50 chicken leg night at Buffalo Wild Wings though.

Just finished a rediculous competition for an Airport in Abu Dhabi, so I took the week off of work.

So, I get to work on the car finally...

Installed Bipipe and H-Sport Sways today. :)   APR ECU comes tomorrow!!! :D

Cool! Mods....I put some new bulbs in last night, but that really doesn't count I guess.

And I'm watching Lost right now...It's actually decent. I got a little bored with it the end of last season.

Invasion's on next. It's really cool in a sort of conspiracy theorist, nerdy, b-rated, sci-fi sort of way :P

Work was dull...just gave up on getting anything done and made Techno with Garage Band.
