<RESEND, darned quoting>

Excellent point, i think the mission of the list is still the same but the content has changed, its always been about information sharing(and going off on a tangent once in a while). I'm thankful to not have to play in the middle tier world.


ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW  The list has changed.

 I find that my tasks on the job have changed as well, now I spend 90%  of my time doing middle-tier stuff because the databases are running  properly. I spend more time on iAS and 3rd party middle tier things  than on the Oracle database.

 Things have changed since Oracle 7.3 was the current version. The  environment is different. Now it's all about Web apps.

 Some people who used to be on the list are no longer there, either, as  far as I can tell. That would change the flavour of the responses.

 Also the market is different in the U.S. now, isn't it? That would  have an impact.
