I hate Oracle. It's arcane, hard to find useful information on without digging and digging and digging, and -- need I say more -- PL/SQL?

On the other hand, when it works, it works well, and it has features up the wazoo; it's pretty danged robust, and once you figure out how, you can do a lot with the DBMS that you used to think was best done in the application.

So I voted for it. Its being arcane and difficult without paying $$$ for the courses got me paid for a lot of hours, which I spent learning Useful Things. I think I've finally experienced the secret, shameful world of software development and marketing first-hand.

At home I just use MySQL and Postgres, but there I'm just noodling. Ahh, hell, at work I'm just noodling too.

perl -e 'print "How sweet does a rose smell? "; chomp ($n = <STDIN>); +$rose = "smells sweet to degree $n"; *other_name = *rose; print "$oth +er_name\n"'
