If you were going to be super-finicky then you’d say that this is not strictly speaking an Oracle-related matter, but Wired Magazine has an article on the tracking of tea-brewing in an office environment. Since I’ve worked with teams of DBA’s whose very life-force only endured through application of a carefully judged ratio of tea and beer, it is in some sense at least semi-related to Oracle.
It would be refreshing for students to have to design a database schema to support this tea-tracking functionality, instead of the usual student-database crap. Or DVD Rental crap.
It’s funny how the really great ideas only seem obvious when someone else has thought of them, but there you go, that’s life I suppose. I regret that as a home-worker I always have to make the tea myself.
