Weekly Update (Revised 2/3)

1. Quote of the Week

In the industry, only with respect to non-OLTP applications, RDBMS is in "keep the lights on" state by necessity, it is either awaiting obsolescence/end of life, or replacement with NoSQL solution; no longer a "workhorse" - this was the discussion point.

2. To Laugh or Cry?

3. Online

4. Elsewhere
