Hello,

   Here's 4 easy steps that show how you too can be a "Seriously 
Disruptive" DBA:

1) Sign on to MySQL as "root"
2) Perform a "show databases;"
3) For each entry you see, issue a "drop database X;" command
4) Sign out and disavow any knowledge of your actions

Now seriously...I was a bit confused here: many MySQL "DBAs" 
(certainly the ones chasing the MySQL certificates) just want to 
master the latest production-rated edition of MySQL; they aren't 
really interested in coding.  In fact, I was a bit surprised to see 
that there was no mention of the MySQL cert program in Mr. Benjamin's 
advertisement looking for a "MySQL DBA" - wouldn't that pool of 
certified MySQL DBAs seem like a better place to start?

MySQL moderators - can we limit these sort of messages to just 
"jobs@stripped" or something?  AFAIK, I'm currently only 
subscribed to "win32@stripped" at the moment and I don't link 
this message "concern(ed) the MySQL software on Microsoft operating systems"
