The process of over-complicating a simple database design to within an inch of it's life. Typical knock on effects include :-
a) delaying project delivery dates by weeks/months
b) an oversized ego of the database designer who done the oraclising
c) general hatred towards the database designer who did the oraclising
All I wanted to do was add 5 values to a combo box but that jumped up DBA had to oraclise it.

To sell your house only for the buyer to pull out of the purchase at the very last minute leaving you in a state of financial ruin which takes months if not years to recover from.
I was supposed to be selling my house tomorrow but I've just been wilkied.

Slang term for £15.

Derived from the 1978 hit single "Three Times A Lady" by The Commodores, where a 'lady' is a lady godiva, which is itself a slang term for £5.

Therefore, three times a lady equals £15.
It's my round. Can someone lend me a commodore so I can buy you all a drink ?

a) delaying project delivery dates by weeks/months
b) an oversized ego of the database designer who done the oraclising
c) general hatred towards the database designer who now has an oversized ego
All I wanted to do was add 5 combo box values into a pre-defined type/value table but that "prick of a jumped up DBA" decided to oraclise it.
