    How long does it take a DBA to screw in a light bulb?

    6 or more weeks.....see how it will

    1 week is planning
    1 week to set up a new equipment and to install tools that query the socket every two seconds for power fluctuations.
    1 week to evaluate what can be done with the old light bulb week to set up development and test systems week to test dozens of different light bulb/socket/light switch configurations and to measure the speed at which the light responds to the switch, ultimately choosing to not use a switch at all but install motion sensors....
    The remaining time is the time the DBA waits to see if anybody asks "Where is the new lightbulb?"

    Have a good weekend....those of you who are not migrating, patching the servers.[8D]
