I admit people skills are not my strong side - that's exactly why I am DBA. I also should've put more detail initially - it is kinda sneaky to put bait out and see who will
go after easy prey. But this is also live thing, and I am putting more detail out as soon as I find it.
I get urgent task at 4 pm and have to come up with solution quickly. RE: public vs private forum: we geeks both are afraid of spotlight and crave for attention.
This post certainly got attention, and unfortunatelly not for it's technical merit.
Completely agree that slamming people is not good, and nice word is good. Also believe that ( contrary to that christian thingy) if somebody hits you, you hit him twice as strong.
And also I like oracle-l, find it mostly useful. And yada, yada, yada, blah, blah, blah - should be less of that, and more real stuff.
