Where's our Award-Winning Educator and former Lego DBA, Mogens? If there is one dream job for me, it would be an Oracle DBA at Lego.

And I was upset to find that someone took my "legoman" username from my ISP at home. :(

As in Lego blocks? Cool.

Heh, I just spent the better part of my Sunday afternoon buying compartmentized boxes and helping my son sort all his legos. When I was a kid, back when the dinasaurs roamed, I had perhaps a dozen distinct Lego shapes to worry about. Now there are so many that I'm sometimes at a loss as to how to categorize and sort them.

The worst is when my son pulls out instructions for some Lego toy he bought a year ago, points to his bin with a full Gigablock of Legos<grin>, and wants me to help him put together whatever it is. Hence, I've decided to help him sort things out a bit.

He might even have a Terablock, I'm afraid to count.
