I’ve never got it when it comes to SQL databases. It’s like, why? Just give me a hash table and a shitload of RAM, and I’m happy. And then you do something to deal with failures.
Right... just "do something to deal with failures". And maybe add some other useful stuff. Shouldn't take too long to implement and make sure it works as intended.
But Mr. Gosling, could you please give me a cost estimate and a delivery date for the data-centric business application I want you to build for me?
