I have been employed as a programmer-type since 1983, but always in non-IT positions. My principal interests are in applications, data analysis and reporting using SAS software on Windows and UNIX environments. I also am quite fluent with the Teradata and Oracle database, especially with respect to data extraction using SQL.

Okay, I'll delete the comment. That was just one of several "hits" from a web search. Just curious why the answer got so many down-votes, but I visit here rarely.

Oops, sorry. I think of all these sites as "Stack Overflow". I'll be more careful next time.

comment Everyone Else's Lives
Welcome to Stack Overflow! Can you give an example of a sentence where such a phrase might be used? I cannot think of one myself. Just edit the question itself; don't add a comment.

It's interesting to me that I only hear this structure used on Brittish content (from BBC America or PBS). However, I have occasionally heard it used by American announcers broadcasting other soccer matches, so it's making it "across the pond".
