An incentive, and a hint

Filed under: SQLServerPedia Syndication,Tongue In Cheek — Michael J. Swart @ 8:21 pm

So last week, I challenged the world to solve a puzzle. This was part of Adam Machanic’s T-SQL Tuesday. And while the entire world does not read my blog, Google Analytics tell me that there are roughly a hundred of you that do.

But even among those of you who read my blog, there were no bites. Not one. So I decided to not give the solution this week. Instead I offer a prize and a hint. First the hint for everyone (it’s a two parter):

  • First, look in the source for a clue
  • secondly, the puzzle is not about cryptography, but can be solved with one or two lines of T-SQL

And now for the prize: Coffee on me. This prize is for one person. I’ve got a $10 Tim Horton’s gift card ready to be sent to the first person to tell me the answer to the puzzle. (A Starbucks gift card if you’re international). So get to it!
Update(1/18/2010)… We have a winner. Check out the solution here.
