[Quoted] Because (A) I don't pretend to be an Oracle expert and (B) you needed the criticism.

[Quoted] I've been reading Oracle topics in newsgroups for a couple of months now and I have found little to no useful information in all that text. [Quoted] Most respondants either tell you to hire a DBA, go back to school, or try to change the subject.

[Quoted] Good Gracious - What a cop-out!
This is what I'm talking about! Do they teach those excuses in Oracle school? I've been programming (databases included) since before Oracle existed and I have never taken that holier-than-thou attitude of yours with anyone who has asked for assistance.

[Quoted] It's sad really. One just doesn't see the willfull exchange of information as found in other technologies.

[Quoted] I suppose it was rather impulsive of me to write this - I just can't figure out if the Oracle experts are rude or just ignorant. Sorry to the OP since I wasn't helpful with these posts. Received on Fri Jan 21 2005 - 20:51:52 CET
