The software is great, but it will take community effort to make SQLA great.

To answer your next question, no, I am not wearing a cheerleader's outfit as I write this :)

"Hey, look, a bounty! Breck just gave Reimer Pods a bounty, that's not fair! Nobody else had a chance!"

Well, think of it as the "SQLA Lottery"... everyone who participates in SQLA is automatically entered in the lottery, and from time to time, the site administrator will non-randomly give out bounties from his own pile of loot. Think of SQLA as a modern commune run by an old-fashioned pirate.

Me thinks you're looking rather cheery in that picture and you're clearly the leader of this thing. So why not replace the somewhat dusty term administrator with cheerleader :).

By the way I couldn't find favorite mentioned in the faq (not to mention favourite, as the british folks in this community might write it).

Cheerleader sounds better than what some others have called me ( "Sybase shill", etc :)

The FAQ is definitely unfinished... it will get done, but answering questions is a lot more fun. And "favourite" is what I am supposed to say, being British Lite myself (Canadian).
