StandardDeviant's Journal: oracle sucks

Journal by StandardDeviant
Eh, so. All these people keep writing about or telling me about how cool oracle is. Alright, so I figure maybe I should check it out. Fuck me! I think oracle should win some lifetime acheivement award for either a) most needless complexity or b) worst documentation that's actually written by native speakers of your language. I'd _like_ to learn sql*plus, but seeing as how I can't get oracle to even install anywhere (linux, solaris, win32, enterprise, or personal) correctly, I think I'm basically just fuqt. I've got a particular bone to pick with Oracle 8i Personal 8.1.7R3 on win32 at teh momemnt becuase apparenly teh installer just silently neglected to do some important things like set up registry entries, and boy do I just love nothing better than guessing my way through hand hacking the winsuck registry with no docs. :-( Bah! Humbug! At this point I think sqlserver should win the enterprise storage "war" just becuase it will piss of Ellison, regardless of the strengths of the databases invovled...
