My new favorite quote, and another reason to become an "Exceptional DBA" :-D:
Brad: All of the advice I provided in my book is very applicable in today's job market. While we don't' have any control over whether or not we are laid, we do have control over our personal career. My advice is for all DBAs to become exceptional DBAs.


So true, so true . . . Hehe

I don't like to predict the future, as I am usually wrong.


I wish all experts were this honest! Thanks for the insights.
