Currently I am a consultant for HP's Vertica. Previously, I was a Jr. Database Administrator and before that, a SQL Server Database Programmer. My graduate research and studies are primarily involved with database models and optimization. I like to write on my blog about technical problems which I've encountered. Feedback is always welcome and appreciated.

I'm a Pastafarian and part of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

comment Which of these two queries is better - can be optimized more?
I doubt you'll get a general consensus. Too much is "it depends." You may want to add those types of things (EXPLAIN statements) to your question.
