  1. Worrying but sadly, not wholly surprising in this age of ‘Please provide me with the script now’ mentality.

    Nearly as bad as not providing a hyperlink to the article. I actually had to use copy and paste. Good job I knew how to do that otherwise I would have been really stuck :-)

  2. Ah… but the original poster said he got the error loading a partition of his DWH and asked what to do… then people told him how to extend the tablespace; could the answer have been load less data?

  3. I
    1. am absolutely not surprised. So many people are assigned a job they can’t to do.
    2. Look at such threads with caution, thinking “what if I’ll be dealing with such people – such case isn’t impossible at all”. Not that I really care. They just make me almost cry.

  4. Until someone in management realizes that “cheap” is a synonym for “ineffective” or “ignorant” or “incompetent”, we’ll have this situation.
    Unfortunately, the above synonyms also apply to most managers nowadays…
