Usually, I try to come with a fresh state of mind when learning about a 
new technology, but then again, I am contaminated with 'SQL' too... I 
made up my own interpretation and I did not find info that invalidates it...

I am glad we had all this conversation, because it reveals dead angles 
and it is pointing at what we can do it to facilitate 'deterministic 
Cassandra learning' (lol).

Somewhere down the road, I'll try to find some time to write a post on 
my blog to cover these issues. Something to the extend of: 'Introduction 
to timestamps in Cassandra'...
