FAQ
How long does it take a DBA to screw in a light bulb?

6 or more weeks.....

1 week is planning
1 week to set up a new equipment and to install tools that query the socket
every two seconds for power fluctuations.
1 week to evaluate what can be done with the old light bulb
1 week to set up development and test systems
1 week to test dozens of different light bulb/socket/light switch
configurations and to measure the speed at which the light responds to the
switch, ultimately choosing to not use a switch at all but install motion
sensors....
The remaining time is the time the DBA waits to see if anybody asks "Where
is the new lightbulb?"

Have a good weekend....those of you who are not migrating, patching or
reorging....

    You forgot

    2 Weeks to haggle on Metalink to convince OWS that there is a bug
    2 Week to receive a *wrong* patch
    1 Week to get the *right* patch

    And of course all the time DBA reading and sending emails on this fine list.
