Thinking of Oracle today...

I see today in the news that Oracle is planning to layoff 1000 people after their Siebel takeover. It was about a year ago that as a former PeopleSoft employee newly working for Oracle that I was contemplating whether I would be let go. After a few months of sitting around doing nothing and thinking "How long can they pay me for doing nothing?" I was not let go and started to work on an Oracle product.

I'm sure there are some nervous folks today in the halls of the Pleasanton offices. Thinking of you and hope you make it through!

I worked hard even in the last day at PeopleSoft. But I was out. It was quite painful and made me feel stupid at end.
