Yeah, I was telling Steve that I joined the old list back in '93 when I was working for Motorola (the first time)... I still wonder whatever became of some of those old people... does anyone else remember Barbare Rosales (BXR)?
I remember the migration to the "new list"... 10 years... we should have a party!

Welcome back Bambi.
It has been about 10 years actually - Jared and I talked about this over the ACE dinner at the recent Oracle Open World. Jared created Oracle-l in 1998 'cos the other listserv sucked, and we traced the progress over the many hosting services..... There were a bunch of us who migrated over from the Quest PL/SQL and DBA pipelines to Oracle-l and we were all excited because the CBO was coming on stream in Oracle 7.x :)
