Probably UN-installing Oracle on a test environment. Oracle assumes
that you will never, ever uninstall their product. I don't think they
even provided an uninstaller for the release I was trying to remove.
Someone in our organization (either QA or Support, I don't remember)
had figured out the convoluted series of steps you had to follow
(which included manually removing services and cleaning out registry
entries) in order to completely remove Oracle from your system. IIRC
I had to do it more than once too, on different laptops. =P
