Yeah, what a ripoff. When I was independent, I had a few places who didn't want to deal with Oracle offer to buy from me, and it was still not worth it. A few more places, or a big place, or me changing my target market, would have made it worth it. As I recall, it made a lot more sense for to have someone apps certified or Oracle Master involved - the latter costed out at something like $6K plus lost DBA wages. That may be worth it if that's what you do, but I'm in a slightly more obscure space.

But you can still get metalink for something like $150, and that may well be worth it, especially if you wind up doing onesie-twosies until you find a real job (or decide you like independance, or hook up with an existing partner and don't want to be dependent). I think Hans over in OTN mentioned the details recently, but of course, if you can't figure it out...
