comment Why do relational databases only accept SQL queries?
If you take a look at LINQ to Entities for .NET, it has a syntax that is very similar to what you are proposing. It is a .NET-specific API for accessing databases, which is translated to standards-based SQL behind the scenes. So in a certain sense you get the best of both worlds. I imagine that similar technologies could exist (or already exist) for other languages. msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb386964.aspx

comment Best option for PDF viewer embedded in web app
Well, this was on a system I was working on over a year ago, but basically there were existing PDFs that we were pulling from a document repository. Converting all of them to web pages was not an option.

Perfect! That looks like a winner. Exactly what I was hoping to find.

comment Algorithm to use for shop floor layout?
@FrustratedWithFormsDesigner I was thinking the exact same thing. I'm curious if anyone comes up with anything else but if left to my own devices this would be my approach. Basically generate a bunch of different graphs based on the different potential layouts and then calculate which graph has the least total weights. Feel free to make that an answer instead of a comment. I think it is a legitimate one.
