The Joys of SQL

Wow. Learning more about SQL and getting a bit impressed. It's far from complex but it has some real power to it. I just cut one of my perl scripts to about half of its size just by modifying a single line of SQL, simply because I hadn't realized what I could do with it.

(Yes, I was a SQL virgin before a few months ago, and yes, I realize that's very odd for a senior sys admin. What can I say, I'm self-taught, and I wasn't in a position before where I needed or particularly wanted it.)
