For example, in that ugly thread about Oracle. I trust that most of the monks here, including myself, never used Oracle, as it is not free. So at least keep quiet. With a DB like Oracle, even if you have worked as a application programmer, you still don';t know much about the DB...

I am very sorry that I don't seem to get the point and not keep quiet either:
I haven't seen so many answers in the named OT thread. And although one of them isn't what the OP asked for, it was no bad guess that it might have been useful to him. We learned that it wasn't after all, but the answering monk had to try first.

I learned something from that answer too, so I am grateful for that.

I also checked: none of the notes in that thread are in Best Nodes of the day, so your claim that it was all for reputation doesn't stand the test of the monks.

As a side note on using Oracle: While you're right about Oracle not being free, I have never had to pay for it. Every time I've been asking Oracle for a copy or license as a developer, telling them what I intended to do, I got one for free for the time I was needing it. They have a developer network and they have a user group programme, and they are either too curious or too kind, it seems, to deny you a copy when you ask them politely.

PS: or did you mean the trollbitten oracle thread? You didn't say.

Cheers, Sören
