I recently received this message from Andrew Tomlinson, a Senior Lecturer in Information Technology at the University of Gloucestershire (a ColdFusion powered site) in the U.K., and am sharing it with Andrew’s permission. Thanks! 🙂
Just a short email to let you know that we have adopted Sams Teach Yourself SQL in 10 Minutes (ISBN 0672325675) as a recommended book on our undergraduate module IS203: Introduction to Databases on which we teach Oracle SQL. I was very impressed by its clarity and conciseness; the students who have bought it have said the same.
Thank you for producing such a useful little book.

  1. Real shame their developers couldn’t be arsed to test their website with anything other than I.E.
    The DHTML doesn’t work in Firefox and means 90% of the site is unreachable through the navigation.
    Well done.

  2. dhtml nav works for me in
    – Firefox 1.07
    – IE6
    – IE Mac 5.2
    – Safari 1.3.1
    altho doesn’t work in Opera 8.5.. I guess I couldn’t be arsed checking anything else….

  3. oops, that sounds like I developed it.. just to say I had nothing to do with development of that site…
    Just wanted to clarify the point on Adam’s post.

  4. I’ll check the company firewall settings and see what’s going on.
    Apologoies for the slander!
