Oreilly <%20http://www.oreillyschool.com/?73235> (the people who host the
MySQL Conference & Expo) run the Oreilly School of
Technology<%20http://www.oreillyschool.com/?73235%20>and do online
MySQL DBA courses at reasonable prices.

Not sure if its still valid but you used to be able to get an extra 30% off
the course prices if you use the
Oreilly<%20http://www.oreillyschool.com/?73235%20>User Group discount
code 'ORALL1' at
