    Yea, I saw that and started to drool. Man I'd love to work there. It's a gamers wet dream. Only thing is I don't think they could pay me enough money to move all the way out there.
    Oracle it's not just a database it's a lifestyle!
    BTW....You need to get a girlfriend who's last name isn't .jpg
