Subject: SQL Is Not Sequel

This is really getting on my nerves, so I have to address it. It seems that many people, even those who should know better, are confusing SQL and Sequel. SQL is pronounced "ess queue ell", and stands for Structured Query Language. It is the modern language used to interact with relational databases.

Sequel is an old database language created by IBM in another lifetime, and the two are not interchangeable, so stop saying "sequel". Sequel is a trademark of an aircraft company in the UK, and SQL is the database language used in modern relational databases.
