Okay, I've recently been given a large project to do on my own at work. I'm developing a PHP/MySQL application that will be used by teaching staff to report their hours at the College, as well as any grants and advising that they are doing. So I picked up some books about PHP and MySQL. I really got into the database stuff, it's pretty slick. Anyway, since I'm the "database guy" now, I've had to deal with people trying to do other database projects with Excel. Or Access. I don't know which is worse. Where did it all go wrong? When did ideas about Oracle and other large database apps get replaced with crap like Excel in the minds of computer users? Or am I just an elitist prick?
