+3 Vote Up -0 Vote Down

Last year a wrote a blog entry on holiday gifts for DBAs that went over quite well with the relatives and loved ones of DBAs. So if you are a MySQL DBA, print out a copy of this, circle the items you like, and get something you like this year. And yes, shopping for you is worse than styling Donald Trump’s hair in a high wind or explaining foreign keys to any cast member of any popular reality or music show. So take some pity on those who are buying you gifts.

  • Cafepress has a series of DBA shirts including ‘Not Normalized’ , ‘Kiss me — I’m the DBA’, and the Key Rule shirt.
  • Think Geek has some good shirts including ‘SELECT * FROM users WHERE clue > 0. Uh oh, zero rows were returned!’
  • and ‘Go away or I will replace you with a very small shell script’

  • Zazzle offers a If first you don’t succeed; call it version 1.0 and the ‘SQizzL My Nizzle’ t-shirts.
  • Office Chairs like the Gravitonus are also igh war items for DBAs and need replacement on a regular basis.

You can also get non-DBA specific for presents such as movie passes, gift cards, and other generic gifts. But the above are your best choices for your DBA this time of year. And if you have special DBA gifts, please share them here!!
