    "How do I backup my sequel?"












    Make sure to save what you've written for your book?

    The fact may point to people language origin. They may be russians, for example ( the letter "es" is absent there).:eek4:

    I've had classes where they pronounce it "sequel" but we obviously know what the professor is talking about.
    He never spells it like that though, always spells it "SQL".

    If you said sequel to someone who had no idea was SQL was, then that's a complete throw off.

    Anyways, doesn't really matter.
    It's just kinda funny.

    I am eastern european and used to call it ES QUE EL however after 10 years of hearing everyone call it sequel it kind of grew on me. Plus try speeling out PL/SQL 5 times in a converstation and you will see why pee el squel is much much easier than pee el es que el

    I'm a "P L sequel" developer, have worked at three shops, and heard it both ways. Fortunately, I've never worked with anyone wrapped around the axle enough to care.
