Congratulations to the winners

I received just an email from Iggy Fernandez. My answer was not in the set of winners. Congratulations to all three. The challenge might be nice rehearsal to solve using Spatial Network Data Model SQL extension. The email as received:

The Second International NoCOUG SQL Challenge was published on 2/13/11 in the February 2011 issue of the NoCOUG Journal (http://bit.ly/gVNZsW). SQL commands to create the data were provided at http://bit.ly/g58WVn. The challenge was to find the secret message hidden in a seemingly random collection of words. The winners are Andre Araujo (Australia), Rob van Wijk (Netherlands), and Ilya Chuhnakov (Russia.) Each winner will receive an Amazon Kindle from contest sponsor Pythian and the August Order of the Wooden Pretzel in keeping with the pronouncement of Steven Feuerstein that“some people can perform seeming miracles with straight Es-Cue-El, but the statements end up looking like pretzels created by somebody who is experimenting with hallucinogens.”

The full announcement can be read in the 100th issue of the NoCOUG Journal (http://bit.ly/rC2gRA).
