    Nice one.
    How about December?. Also, how was January about games?

    Although nature commences with reason and ends in experience it is necessary for us to do the opposite, that is to commence with experience and from this to proceed to investigate the reason.

    That was fairly easy. But what is "Best buy"?

    Best Buy is a North American retailer:
    http://www.bestbuy.com/

    The Contest is just to expose more of ApexSQL it seems.

    Let's not have sales people take over this site.

    Hopefully, the contest is a fun way for our website supporters (who pay for this site) to have some fun with our members, and at the same time allow some people to become more familiar with the products they offer.

    I'll try to catch up with the top posters for December and January. My vacation, and now my foot surgery (I'm still at home recovering) has slowed me down.

    If the winner is not from the United States, then we will give away a $250 gift card from Amazon.com instead of Best Buy, as this should allow most people from other countries to use the prize.

    The contest has been going for over a week now, and the number of entries has been disappointing. This also means that there is a much larger chance of you winning if you enter.

    Brad, have you ever thought about that the questions are way too difficult?

    The questions seem to be set by a first-day student of sales technique, where the course material isn't very refined to begin with, and the teacher has a headache.

    That, or I'm just not gullible enough.

    They were written by a marketing person at ApexSQL. Since they are the sponsors, they get to pick what they want to do.
