SQL, the -erm- sequel

And so to SQL. I’ve found a lovely little site called SqlZoo to brush off my sql rust with: it’s very enthusiastic children’s television meets quite gentle learning. I like. Thank you chaps.

Blog tracking

Well, I did try Google Analytics, but didn’t really get on with it. So now it’s time to play with IceRocket’s tracker; link courtesy of a visibly shrinking (courtesy of the diet) Gemma. It will be interesting to see what happens, and whether I really do have an audience of 1.

c sharp

Okay, time to learn c#. So far, all I know about it is that it’s a C++ nd Java-like hybrid that’s nanny-like in its control of variable use (in fortran, implicit none was a good idea; removing the ability to shadow global variables with local ones seems to be very market-specific, i.e. if you have to hack in this language, it’s going to be even messier than usual).

Anyway, onwards: onto a tutorial or two, then back to TopCoder to test out my new skills…
