DKB on a tear!

Don Burleson is on a tear today. He posted on his blog, the following entry on Scum of the Computer Industry in which he referred a photograph that HJR took on one of his trip from Down Under to North Carolina. I looked at HJR's posting of the picture and maybe it was a poor choice but the gist is the lack of proper English/grammar/spelling and how the language was being abused. Anyhow, Don commented on "evil people" and that almost all of them are non-US born. Hmmm...that's a rule of thumb and generalization that we don't need (as if we already don't have enough trouble with our current world situation) and he went on to offer a "Go to Hell" to HJR and all those Oracle database sicko's who associates with him (which basically includes all of HJR's clients and students plus attendees to his talks and presentations). He apparently also banished Jeff Hunter from his DBA forum for daring to question Don's recommendation of hosting a production database on a US$750 PC (single processor with no redundancy). I unfortunately was not able to see the posting as yours truly was banned from that forum for questioning Don's "tongue in cheek" article on the end-user community.

Just found out that DKB has banned Jeff Hunter from the DBA forums and sent him a nasty e-mail laced with profanities. See Jeff's new blog site for details.

'Tis true, I saw the post. And it just hit me - Mr. you-gotta-have-a-big-honkin-system-
or-it-ain't-real-world bought a $750 single-processor server to use for production? Must be a Gemini (talking out of both sides of his face). Arrrrggghh!
