If I win, can I bring my wife, and a curtain?


I may only be an "accidental" DBA, but I'm entering, if only for the chance to go for the ride...

What does the winner tell the boss?

"Hey I need a week or three off. Yeah I hope I have wifi, will have to check with NASA. I'm going into space. No, seriously. No Joke."

For the first 30 seconds, your boss would probably assume you're talking about storage, until you say, "No, I mean OUTER space."

Most of the DBA's I have worked with over the past 30 years are already out in space. To think out of he box as much as they have had to and to perform as many miracles that have been required to make things work correctly they have had to be out there somewhere.

Love the idea of the contest!

haha - no doubt. I don't know that my boss would even hear anything other than "have" or "have not" got internet access and a number to be reached at.

I'm sure that the solitude would be much appreciated by the winner! at least for the first few days...
