Re: Early 11g Advanced Table Compression #'s

You responded to my post, which in turn was a response to a poster,
who called his tests horrible. Horrible, epistemically speaking,
amounts to being FALSE: this is how oracle has taught to
systematically think!

Well, forget instrumentation, but you are dealing with a black box, a
turning machine whose state machine is not known to the users.

Systematic explanation is not so much about finding what factors cause
problem, but one that tells exact relationship between these factors;
if some cases dont follow this relationship, one can also postulate a
set of hypotheses that are protective belts, and which explain these
negative cases. IN other words, it is like asking for the state
machine of the black box turing machine that oracle is, or find the
matrix representation of that black box.

We have a group that claims "it all depends", who is fighting burleson
who publishes heuristics (which are fallible, of course). This "it all
depends" is trivial, end of the story: if you wanna bark, you are
welcome to do it how many times you want).

There is no need for me to lecture on systematics. There are books,
journals, around that precisely deal with the growth of human
knowledge--whether it is in the area of atomic physics or in the area
of economics.
