Obscure tech rant of the day

Oracle blows goat nads today. Here I am, doing a mildly complex query – something along the lines of :

select a.id, a.title, b.someinfo from a, b where a.id in (3,1,7) and a.id = b.id(+)

So the result order *SHOULD* be 3,1,7.
Nooooo. Every time, the query returns 1,3,7. So that’s today’s head-bang-wall exersize – figuring out where this darn auto-sort is happening when no sort should be taking place.

Screw it, I’m gonna go get some lunch.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
