Look, I am trying to put in practice what I studied, you could be a little more kind in giving me some advise. Or you just forgot when you studied and when you were at your first day in some place???? I think you did.......
What I just want to do is try to start working as a real DBA..When I said real DBA, is that I left my daily classes and I want to start working to becoming as good as others..I know is a long way, but I deserve the opportunity...... May be you misunderstood my have to be more patience...I don't know how you are a Senior DBA with this selfish and antipatic behavior.... Received on Thu May 08 2008 - 12:31:51 CDT
