I see the future, and it is a DBMS.
Yesterday I did my Oracle Assignment. I spent from 7pm to 2.30am on it, and then from 9am to 3pm, when it was marked. Estimated project time (according to the assignment: 25 hours.
Actual time spent on assignment: (What with lectures and hanging about waiting for marking) – about 9 hours.
Actual mark for assignment: 54%
Average mark for people who had spent the last four weeks on it: 56%
Almost makes me wish I’d started earlier
