more I think about this, the more it rankles and amuses me....I mean,

<FONT face=Arial color=#0000ff

size=2>lookit.....not that this announcement of theirs was to "the list" per se, but
list <FONT face=Arial color=#0000ff
size=2>is not an entirely unrepresentative mixture of Oracle DBAs out there...
<FONT face=Arial color=#0000ff

so, if you took someone who really new internals like Adams or Lewis or Gaja
someone who understood "big" databases like Ian at Stanford and all the other
quality folks here on the list, doncha think *that* team could turn MetaStink
<FONT face=Arial color=#0000ff

size=2>around?  You bet it could. Without all the bullshit and "million dollar" offers and posturing
Armani suits.  And I am supposed to truly believe that "<FONT face="Times New Roman" color=#000000>Our Global IT team are working these
performance issues as their number one priority." ?  Oh yea, right. Pass the crack pipe,
I want some more <SPAN
class=974212420-27022001>time to think
about that one.

out in
Redwood Shores.

9i, of course, will fix all this.

  think they would have given some more information but then they would have to   admit that it is actually a microsoft Sql server runnin on a macintosh.    Their duhvelopers really liked the graphics that a mac provided and the ease   of use microsoft provided.  So now they are going to upgrade it to 16   MEGS of powerhouse RAM.  Oh that bad boy will fly, I mean, they're   Oracle, they can't give away all of their secrets.

    You know, for an announcement to a bunch <FONT     size=2>of serious hardcore tech people, it was sure     SHORT ON DETAILS.
    "front end web servers"...
    "additional hardware...."
    uh huh sure <FONT
    size=2>fine whatever.....
    The courtesy of a message with some real meat would be     nice, instead of this McDonalds' Advisory "The     fry-o-lators are being fixed and should be ready     soon now. Please try our new apple pies!"
