gud lst but 2 menee buks

by stress junkie In reply to xslent repli, stres junke ...

Whew, it's hard to write like that.

That's a pretty big list. I hadn't heard of cubes before I read this guy's post. Admitedly I have been out of the DBA business for about 18 years. I've just focused on system administration in that time. I wanted to show what you can accomplish in five minutes on Google. I looked up about five references. When I found this introductory article and read about half of it I figured it would fill the bill. That databasejournal.com web site looks like a good place for DBAs to hang out. They seem to have a lot of good material.

Anyway you certainly made a nice reference list.

lotsa peeple

by Dr Dij In reply to gud lst but 2 menee buks

get their company to sign up for subscripshun. I'm paying for it personally. Is worth it to be able to put most of my dead tree versions in storage, gf appreciates this veri much.

Someone in a class said 'well, I can't go lounge on a beach with the online version'

If you want to be reading these books on the beach you have bigger problems :)

what is nice, you can take ALL your books on trips. They have other collections for biz, finance, etc.

Am taking some proj mgmt courses and they had 41 books on that topic, just 4 IT. More proj mgmt in biz section.

and you can search all the pages and across books; that's how I got cube list, just searched for word 'cube' across all content
