Ben (11:42:31 AM): scott is saying that a job that refreshes a materialized view is missing.  how do those jobs get destroyed?  do they manually have to be deleted?
Ben (11:42:46 AM): or would the job be destroyed if i had manually refreshed a mview.
James (11:43:25 AM): I’m not sure why it would be missing

So, let me explain this post before I have Chinese or Canadians or Chinese-Canadians knocking down my door.  It’s nice to have a shapeless face or ambiguous, amorphous entity or object on which to blame all of life’s problems.  You can’t blame God because it’s not His fault.  He has given people free agency.  People are imperfect.  It’s their fault.  I didn’t want anybody to FEEL bad though so it had to be a group that I didn’t have a lot of contact with.  I wanted a group that wouldn’t report back, almost like it didn’t exist.  A small group…  that’s really hard to find…  like the Chinese.


And Canada…  well, eveybody blames Canada.  And Obama.
