Not only is it not in the dumpster, I'm currently in
the process of trying to upgrade this piece of crap to
9i. This is the horror story about the upgrade to 8i
where we hit 2 bugs and our performance went down the
tubes. (and oracle refused to address bugs, even tho
we were under support.) exp/imp won't work. we might
entertain ideas about unloading/reloading the entire
databases. (In my spare time...) So the block size is
STILL 4068.

Ok, so the vendor who wrote this gem created a block
size of 4068.  (Dan: you remember these bozos?)
Their rationale, which they placed in the init file:
###############################################################################
# The db_block_size is set at 9 multiples of 512
bytes(OpenVMS block size)
# This is to accomodate the WO table. The average row
length of the WO table is
# 900 bytes. A 4608 parameter allows 5 rows to be
stored in a single Oracle bloc
k
# Do not change without consulting (I removed the
vendor name)

In addition to the basic stupidity of the 4608 block
size, they did not take into account either (1) new
columns in the table, nor (2) space required in the
header.

So I'm wondering . . . When we hit either 9i or 10g,
will the block size cause this thing to finally
implode???

Inquiring minds want to know . . .
