Just need help making one query. <thumbs> keb: ask #sql <thumbs> keb: you're very welcome. <keb> And I'm unfamiliar with ASP.NET and MS Sql. <thumbs> keb: ask #sql <keb> thumbs, lol I did. <keb> thumbs, you just said that lol <thumbs> keb: perfect. Then you're done here. <keb> thumbs, lol, should I leave? <thumbs> keb: feel free to idle and ask questions related to MySQL. <keb> thumbs, who created MySQL? <thumbs> keb: you may not ask MSSQL questions here, however. <thumbs> keb: google it. <keb> thumbs, can I use MySQL with Sega Genesis? <thumbs> keb: sensible questions. <keb> thumbs, what's the difference between MySQL and a ham sandwich? * ChanServ sets quiet on *!*firstname.lastname@example.org <keb> lol * #mysql :Cannot send to channel
