I started a new client engagement this week and it's a bit different
toolset and set of problems. In many ways it's very reminiscent
of my first real IT job (but my client seems to be infinitely smarter
than) and it almost feels like coming home. I know I may be in
the minority, but I grew up on Oracle and I'm happy to finally be
back. I can, or could, dash off PL/SQL directly into the command
line, but I've never managed to get a handle on the ANSI standard
syntax for outer joins.
Plus, I still think TOAD is my database tool of choice and I love hearing the little croak when if fires up.
