And off we go

"I forgot how much I hate space travel" - C-3PO, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

This blog is primarily for my my edification, a place where I can record interesting pieces of information about the life of a DBA, code snippets, tips and tricks.

If anyone finds things here that can help them out in their day to day work, great, but the initial intent is mainly for my use.

Why the name ? I am an Australian who has been living in the United States for almost 20 years. In my early days on the internet, I used to put "Aussie In Exile" at the bottom of my Usenet postings.

Since this is going to be a place to record DBA musings, "DBA In Exile" seemed to fit the theme.

Oh, and since I'm a bit of a Science Fiction nutjob, I may throw some of my favorite movie quotes at the top of each post, just for giggles.
