O'Reilly DBA Training Fail!


I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a joke or not, but perhaps they'll discuss what happened here!


  1. Hey, I'm the director of OST. Tim sent me here.

    My admins are telling me that one of our programmers had an inefficient query on that page and couldn't handle the traffic from Tim's tweet, which says two things: 1) Tim is quite popular. 2) We need to make sure our admins are communicating with our web developers more.

    BTW, the irony is not lost on us.


  2. Yeah, I followed the link from his tweet right after his posting. I seriously wasn't sure if it was a joke or not, but figured others would get a chuckle from it.

    I did see Tim's follow-up tweet, but it was quite ironic indeed.

  3. The irony is not lost on me either. Very funny.
