The SSL certificate presented by the server did not pass validation. This could indicate an expired SSL certificate or a certificate that does not include the requested domain name. Please contact your hosting provider to ensure that an up-to-date and valid SSL certificate issued by a Certificate Authority is configured for this domain name on the origin server.

some one needs to mention how painfully hard it is to debug linq statements. unless you are doing something really straight forward or you have tons of experience writing linq, it is all too easy.

I loved it. I will use as an argument in favor of Linq. Some programmers think is too dificult to use and provides little benefit (it is just a way to pass SQL without using string, they say), they are wrong.

Enjoyed the article. Will keep it for future reference. It blends the mathmaticall with the real world. With the evolution of big data; every programmer should reveiw and update their LINQ skills.

A very good article. Kept for future reference. More programmers should be employing LINQ than are currently but those who don't, probably don't have sufficient formal training in data-base theory in order to feel comfortable with this powerful technology. Oh well, the fewer competitors the better, I suppose!

To Erik M. => {:)} Great piece of thought process and analogy and application through relational algebra to all systems.

To Rene Bouw, Brian Beckman, and Terry Coatta, I appreciate bringing this article to something I could relate to and understanding meaning.

Love IT vote! CurtisC
