One can (very simplistically) divide IT roles into support or development. These require different skills, and deliver different satisfaction. You need to decide where your natural abilities lie, and what gives you enjoyment. Very simply, DBA work tends to be in support, Forms work more in development. In my case, I know that I do development work well, and so do many other people; but when it comes to support, I am the best there is. However, in support, the best you can hope for is that no-one knows you are there: no user ever says "that was great database administration!" But users do (occasionally) say "well done - nice piece of development".

Enough said - my Enterprise Governance Risk and Compliance installation is at the final stage. Possibly no-one will say "thankyou" if I can get it going, but I will be proud that I did it.

More often they say "what a piece of crap!" (commenting your (developers' in general, not John Watson's) application) /forum/fa/1986/0/

The DBA gets the blame for everything. The drains are blocked? Call the DBA. It was probably a DBA's mistake that put the wrong teams in the world cup final.
