    Harrumph to you then I say with my arms firmly crossed over my chest.

    (see, this will get me one more post and I'll graduate to "not as junior" soon)

    Amazingly enough, Harrumph is actually a word.

    By The way

    DBAsupport ought to give me some super hi-fi status for bringing in Tom kyte and also others who would keep Hanky busy for a longer period.

    So what'd I win??

    I am not against (or really for) multiple block size tablespaces.

    I am against people saying "they are so cool, use them" without any sort of information to go with it.
    Geeeezzz Tom how you and me think alike, I also voted right in the middle.

    Take the hint from other posters.See that funky tag of Mr Hanky and DaPi??

    Ah, then you understand how the system works.

    Mr Hanky, for example, has over 2,600 posts but most of them are the most misguided nonsense you've ever read. Probably 1,500 of them are about shooting developers, so you guys ought to get along just fine and dandy.

    Wow, honerable mention in a dave/tom thread, I am flattered.

    I have to agree with dave on this, although the only difference between my posts and his is that I realize mine are (for the most) nonsense. Dave has yet to get past the denial phase, I believe it is step three of his looooong 12 step program.
    I remember when this place was cool.

    Also to note that reply from mike ault's on the oracle app dba forum, it's a copy/paste from metalink.
    Is that allowed?

    Hi Tom, just click here and look for "Custom User Text:". You can change it to anything you want. Like for example, "Smarter than DB". Maybe one of the moderators will give you an honorary 100,000 posts. Oh but I guess we shouldn't do that as it is wrong to inflate stats.

    The mention was in passing, try not to get too excited!

    no such option for me :(

    I only see email, homepage, icq, IM, yahoo meseenger, signature, birthdate, biography, location, interests and occupation...

    Must be something for not-junior members Either that or it is a conspiracy, I've seen those before.
