( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Speaking as a DBA who voted "Other", I am so glad I don't ever have to do any admin work on Oracle.

Update: Okay, I'll admit that my DB of choice is whatever they pay me to use--but all I have installed on this stinking WinME PC is Adabas D, and I can't make the fscking ODBC driver and DBI::ODBC work together.

I'm about to break down and either network to the old "laptop" (is it still really a laptop if it needs a monitor and a keyboard to work?) where I have Access (sigh. I know) or install MySQL, just to have _something_ to play with.

I need to make a Linux box and install PostgreSQL, that's what I need to do.
