Re: hinting and the rule based optimizer

No, there is new oracle hint in the RDBMS 11i. It goes like this:

select /*+ don't do it */ sysdate from dual; 

That turns on the non-deterministic optimizer which takes into account
the current mood of the computer as well as the local superstitions.
BTW, if we have a ton of books helping dummies to understand computers,
shouldn't we have at least one which would help computers understand dummies?
It's a larger problem then you think...
