I have gotten to the point where Sybrand's rants have become rather comical. He seems more like a bot than an actual person, posting some variation on "lazy programmers" and "RTFM" to pretty much all original posts on any of the oracle groups.

As much as I really wish he'd stop grumping and whining though, he does seem to know his stuff very well and it would be a shame to lose the good contributions that he does make every once in a while. Still, I wish he'd just ignore/kf/whatever the threads that he feels the urge to unleash a torrent of condescending remarks at rather than posting yet another useless rant.

(minor intro)

I have been mostly lurking here for a few months, but I have posted a few responses to things. There's one question I've been wanting to ask but I really don't want to post something and have Sybrand jump all over me for "being lazy" or whatever BS he wants to use in his particular response at that time. It's a PL/SQL optimization related question (the issue has already been solved, I am just curious why it was an issue in the first place).

Anyway, I am a fairly junior DBA, and I haven't had anyone at all to learn from but I was able to twist my employer's arm and get them to send me to the two 10g DBA classes which I found very useful. Fortunately or no, now I am the defacto database everything for the entire organization and it quite honestly scares me sometimes because I don't really know all that much. Reading these newsgroups makes it quite clear I don't know all that much.

Unfortunately for me, the way my organization is set up, I can't really make use of the things discussed on these groups the most like SAN, DataGuard, RAC, but I am very interested in learning more about them. That's why I've been reading all the discussions on them here, even if I don't really understand a whole lot of what's being said. These newsgroups have been very useful for me, but the angry rants, not so much.

(Oh, and D.A. Morgan -- thank you for your psoug site, it has been very useful to me over these past few years; the examples are great)
