I don’t think the word synonym is especially hard to spell, I just think it’s hard for my fingers to type it correctly. I’ve incorrectly typed it often enough that muscle memory is working against me.

I run into a lot of developers that never learned to type, which sounds weird to me – like a plumber who doesn’t like wrenches…but anyways, if you need a bit of help, Oracle SQL Developer feels your pain.

Start typing, we'll tell you what comes next.

Looking Forward

We’ve spent a little bit of time here in version 4.1 (available soon’ish) to make this even better.

    SYNONYM, I can’t say, I can’t spell it. I wish they’d think up another word for it.
