Dear MySQL DBA — You are darn near impossible to shop for and the holidays are quickly approaching. Make a hard copy of this blog, cut at the dotted line below, circle the items you want, and hand this out to the folks who will be buying you presents. If you do not you may get the coffee cup that plays the Baby Shark sound continuously when it senses hot liquids inside — you do not want that.
Dear person trying to by a MySQL DBA a gift,
Yes, that person is very hard to buy gifts for and they are presenting this to you to aid your hunt. If you to to https://opensourcedba.wordpress.com/ you will find links to the vendors selling these goods. Hopefully this will ease the holiday shopping pressure.
A funny cup
A great shirt
Probably for the kids of DBAs or future DBAs. But may not be a bad idea for the extra sloppy adult.
