Subj:   Subscribing to TDATA-L
 
From:   Jay Selkie

This discussion group has been establish as way for people who share an interest in NCR's Teradata product to communicate with others of similar interest. TDATA-L is an open, unmoderated discussion list. Whether you are a DBA, developer, user, student or just curious, this list exists for you to share your interest with others. It does not matter if you have 15 years of experience or you are brand new to relational databases, you are welcomed to either lurk or jump right in and voice your opinions. Virtually any topic related to Teradata, from novice to the professional level, is open for discussion.

Please note that this list is NOT sponsored or otherwise recognized by NCR, although NCR employees are welcome to subscribe and participate. This list is supported and administered by a Teradata enthusiast. The promotion and/or marketing of products is not welcomed on this list - see the rules of conduct for further details.

The following are the Rules of Conduct for the TDATA-L discussion group. The rules have been kept short and are focused on making the membership to this Discussion Group a valuable and enjoyable experience.

<> This list has been created for those interested in NCR's Teradata product line. It is expected that some off-topic discussions will occur, but they should be avoided. Should an off-topic discussion get too far away from Teradata or if there are complaints from the group about an off-topic discussion, the administrator retains the right to terminate the thread. An effort should be made to stay on-topic and take off-topic discussions off of the list.

<> This list is being supported by a Teradata enthusiast and although products can be discussed, this list cannot be used for marketing or product promotion. At some point in the future, to help with the cost of this list, it might be necessary to seek commercial support (aka 'advertising'). Hopefully, that time is a long way in the future.

<> The list administrator has the final say concerning the membership of this list, although it is unlikely that anyone will ever be excluded. Open discussion on this list is to be encouraged, but severe or repeated violations of the Rules of Conduct can and will result in permanent removal from this list. The members of this list are largely professionals and professional behavior is expected.

<> Since there is an expectation of professional behavior, obscenities and/or personal attacks (aka 'Flaming') will be a reason for revoking your membership. This list is unmoderated and so such postings will be distributed to the group when they occur. Once the list administrator detects the violation, action will be taken. Consider your membership to this list in the same terms as you consider your employment: You can get away with some things, but you don't want to push too far. Professionalism is the key.

<> Please do not send attachments to the list. Instead of simply sending an attachment, ask interested people to respond via private email and then send the attachment to them. The problem is that attachments are not handled by the DIGEST process. In addition, to save space, any attachments will be deleted from the archives. If this approach doesn't work for managing attachments, then other arrangements will have be found.

Thank you in advance for adhering to the Rules of Conduct. Following these rules will ensure that this list will be a useful and enjoyable tool for all members.

Anything about the Teradata can be discussed, including various 3rd party products. Examples are BTEQ, MLoad, FastLoad, ITEQ, FastExport, PERFMON, HUTCNS, WINDDI, the ODBC interface to Teradata, WINCLI, TDP, TS/API, CLI 2, ECLI, ECLIPS, Queryman, InTERAgate, BEZ, Microstrategies, GQL, Business Objects, FOCUS, NOMAD, sharing the database environment with DB2, Oracle, Sybase or SQL Server. Also open for discussion are system administration issues (for Teradata, MVS, Unix or Windows NT), experiences with the various releases (V2R2, V2R3, V2R4, etc), SQL syntax, Teradata Manager, query optimization techniques, system problems, restarts, glitches - you've got the idea.

If this sounds of interest to you, please join us.
