    But I'm having TERRIBLE TROUBLE with Excel, now that version 4 macros are no longer supported. If they had to change, why not FORTRAN instead of this Visual Basic thingy . . .

    Ouch! It took me a couple of years just to realize how da*n huge Oracle really is.


    Looking at the OBE course content
    1 What It Takes to Administer a Database (No additional materials correspond to this chapter)
    2 Installing Oracle and Building the Database
    3 Getting Started with Oracle Enterprise Manager Database Control
    4 Configuring the Network Environment
    5 Managing the Oracle Instance
    6 Managing Database Storage Structures
    7 Administering Users and Security
    8 Managing Schema Objects
    9 Performing Backup and Recovery
    10 Monitoring and Tuning the Database


    ... aint that a bit too much to learn in two days? Maybe it'd need three, or even four days?


    Seriously, though, somehow I don't like that. Why not name the course/concept '2 day very very short introduction ...' (big O being a company, of course, I understand they want a quicker sell)

    However, if this course, OBE and documentation (from docu library, B10742-02) means that you also read Concepts and Admin Guide, it could be in the right direction.



    Happy Easter folks!
    ps. I'm on leave til thursday ds.
    Oh! Look! A nerd... and some nerdlings!
