I didn't put OT in the header because I think this is very on topic. I will be emailing Bruce to see what he needs, or feels is a fair contribution for my participation in this list through the years. I have gained so much from the members of this list. Without those who participate, both past and present, I would never have progressed as far along the DBA route as I have. Ofttimes, I'll read about a problem someone has posted here and, although I can't help them, I do copious research to further my education and knowledge. Many of these problems have subsequently cropped up within my DB's, and I am much better prepared to handle them as a result. I also save, research, and test many of the scripts posted here. Some work, some don't, some can afford to be tweaked, but playing with them has given me a deeper understanding of what goes into being a DBA (plus I've now got a great toolkit - just need to learn PERL!).

I pay for my subscription to the daily newspaper. This forum is at least as valuable to me as the newspaper (I even get the comic section here).

There is a cost to the Internet - that's why many of us have jobs. I urge the members of this community to search their conciouses and give what they can to help this forum prosper.

Someday I'd like to make it to OOW and meet some of you (heck, I've thought about driving down to San Antonio just to meet Scott. Does Mladen ever leave his cave?)
