Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says:

You can also access SQL Server directly from the server. Direct server access is convenient,

I just hope anyone else doing this has a more interesting book next to them :)

Erm ... yep I think your right - how sad :(

Come on - there must be someone out there with a more interesting book!

I suppose I could half cheat and give you

'I told you already,' the curator stammered, kneel-

That's from The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown which is way more interesting than Using Microsoft SQL Server 6.5 Second Edition. Unfortunately the more interesting book wasn't closest.

Yep, but I go back and re-read a book I like so I'm half way through it on the second time :)

I enjoyed it - he puts a lot of activity into a very short time frame! Have you read it?

Peace

I think that's down in the depth in the interest stakes :( Shame we are all so boring people ... or at least our books are boring.

The key is in the instruction "Grab the book nearest to you". When at my computer, the nearest book was the O'Reilly reference on programming internet email. If I had been in the bedroom the book would have been much more interesting!

Well I'm quite happy for you to pick a different location and come up with something more interesting if you want :)
