Baby!!  Kick some developer butt!!  I am kind of in the same boat with you.  People telling me things are supposed to be faster when they obviously can't be faster.  Yes, it will query in 0.000000 seconds, lets just tune it a littel more.  Not to mention constantly trying to convince my boss why I am an asset to the company, can't take much more of that!!  Bring on the Rolling Rock!!

"Hello Oracle Guru"

  Now why is it that I get more respect on the   Internet than I do in my workplace.  ??   How many of you have this problem?  It's like   an ongoing fight with developers, they want carte blanche in the production   database, and they do whatever they want EVEN THOUGH I tell them NO, let's do   something different that won't affect production.  I go to the CTO   because this is like the 3rd time this has happened, and he sends out a   let's-be-sure-not-to-offend-anyone email.  But the developer(s) will go   ahead and do what they want ANYWAY.  I'm waiting for the first   user-mistake recovery to say STOP, I've had ENOUGH and this is how it's going   to be, no ifs, ands or buts. 
  My last job may have been a sweatshop, but at least   people respected my authority.  Here, it's a free for all no matter what   I do.  Even when I say, Dude, I own the database.  If there's a   problem, I have to fix it.  Therefore I say what happens in production   and what doesn' t happen in production.    And yes, I am looking for another position.  I   can only take this dba/developer/janitor role for so long.   I'M SO GLAD IT'S FRIDAY...  Bring on the   Captain Morgan!  It's noon somewhere...   Lisa Rutland Koivu <FONT
