Right Pat, because the chances of me polling a database community, in the database concept forum, about schools and stocks--as opposed to, you know, content management systems--are great. I wonder if guys like you on car forums still need catalytic converter spelled out whenever someone talks about cats.
I must have put common sense past you Pat, sorry. Won't make that mistake again.
Yes folks, surprising as it is, I'm not referring to a school in North Carolina. I apologize to those of you who PM'ed me your favorite teachers, I may be a bit out place here (I'm new), maybe I posted on the wrong forum, but I'm actually talking about databases. Who knew, right?
Content Management is about as closely related to databases as is Digital Rights Management. Both of them are applications/technologies that are used by (usually web) sites that run on databases, so effectively a third or more generation relationship... I can guarantee you that all three of the CMS examples that I cited are direct users of databases, so second generation relationships.
I was making a joke at a common error I see from very new users, trying to get you to understand that if you aren't specific in what you ask for that you can't expect specific (or useful) responses.
I don't know what a web CMS is, care to enlighten me?
Pat is an expert in just about everything even closely related to databases and programming (at least I've not caught him out yet...) and I respect him for it. Pat's answer was both valid and correct in answering your question - take his advice with a pinch of salt if you want; if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing.
If you don't know what a web CMS is (which is probably nobody that posts here), then this thread doesn't require your input anyway.
Think a little.
PS: A school (with the initials CMS) uses a database, so a database guru would confuse a school with a content management system? What are you saying man?
Ur. umm.. Man.. let me try and help you out here. A good way to know whether someone knows what they are talking about is by the number of posts they have.
Pat is an expert and one of the "Top dogs" in these forums and is highly respected. With all due respect, a person that has to ask about what an attribute is, is certainly not in any position to make a statement like that. Do me a personal favor.. You think a little
