Hop into the wayback machine and fire up any flavor of PICK. The database where schema is applied on use, not on storage. No length limits on fields and very fast on old hardware (really fast on new). Storing bits of xml and code are no problem. And for those users who simply must have SQL, many versions will support that too (UniData and UniVerse are two examples). It's not cool, not new, but it does work.
I'd fire you for being an idiot.
That would be brilliant to setup and run for a few days! Obambi and company would probably declare it a terrorist denial of service attack.
The cost is suspiciously low. To install proper high speed rail, you have to have new tracks that do not allow freight trains. To install new track, you must frequently purchase land or right of way. The budget will be blown on that before they lay the first track tie.
You should do some more research on who bought those wonderful bonds. You may find the federal reserve is buying the bonds. The call this "Quantitative Easing". Others simply call it printing money.
Higher than the net around my house.
Can we create a device that will jam idiot congress critters and government bureaucrats? I'll buy two please.
"These hands have been touched by God!!"
Aye, any idiot can create a web site and many do!
It's not about the cost of the hardware. A large organization will want the cost of management and support to be low as that is an ongoing expense. A thin client that costs double what a PC costs can return that upfront cost over a couple of years worth of much cheaper support costs.
