Having Very Excellent Skills, for the 20th Century

Here's a resume that's (1) somewhat stuck in a 5-yr old time warp from a technology perspective, but perhaps not from a patterns and methods perspective, and (2) just abysmal in capitalization, grammar, sentence patterns....typical of ESL with no review. Just 10 minutes of repair would improve this resume 100%! I've included only the top technical reference section, to look at:

And Here's my initial comments/reaction:
 “Having” – what sort of word/grammar is that?
 What’s the difference between “having”, “good” and “excellent” experience – I’m only really interested in the “excellent”
 A “wide variety of development tools” – then no actual development tools listed
 Java 2.0? Perhaps he meant 1.2, plus what about 1.3-1.5?
 What’s the difference between the “RDBMS” and “Database” rows?
 Isn’t PL/SQL a scripting language?
 “Web Technologies” – are RMI/CORBA technologies really “web”?
 What exactly is “Java Web Server”, does he mean Sun One?
 Lots of misspellings, capitalization errors, etc.
 Seems to be stuck back in 1999, with Oracle 8, Java 2, MS-office 2000 (a development tool?)

It really depends on what job is being applied for, whether the resume's technologies are current/acceptable or not...though you can't be sloppy about it.
