in reply to Hire a Perl programmer and get a database guru free?

Hmm, you looking for someone who knows DBI and SQL? Or, are you looking for a perl programmer who is a DB admin?

If it's the first one, some perl gurus I know can give you that. Even though SQL is not the trivial chore some make it out to be. If it's the latter, I think you're asking for headaches.

ie. I'll use an Oracle database, but don't ask me to install the software and set up the users and security, etc. etc. Any DB admin worth his salt will tell you that being a DB admin is a serious job ;)

So be careful what you ask for. You may think you're asking for one thing, but actually looking for another. (like 2 people instead of one)

[ambrus]: Today I accidentally cut my hand while carrying a computer. On the display part of the motherboard that sticks out at the back of the chasis and has ports, there's this thin metal sheet with holes cut for the ports, to guide plugs into the sockets.
[ambrus]: This sheet has sharp needle-like parts, 0.004 long and less than 0.001 wide, that can get bent to point outwards, and one of these cut into my palm when I lifted the box.
[ambrus]: So now when I choose what motherboard to buy for my new home computer, I have one more specific property to guide me. Useful, because there's so many different boards to choose from.
