And our blogosphere is fine too and here is the latest report about them in this week’s edition Log Buffer #217.
Log Buffer has become the mainstream carnival of the Oracle blogosphere. Technological advances in Oracle, MySQL, SQL Server and other database systems, more and more conferences, and increasing numbers of bloggers are making log buffering more and more interesting, and this week’s edition Log Buffer #216 is a clear manifestation of that.
In order to appreciate the springing blogging innovations, this week’s Log Buffer, Log Buffer #215 picks some of the flowers just for you.

Pythian, a cluster of passionate DBAs, gives freedom to their DBAs to act. Here, with many companies, and with many databases of a different nature with varying requirements the DBAs are kept on fire. DBAs find reasons to come to their job every day, and when they do and learn new things every day, they rise to new heights.

That is what Pythian is all about in my opinion.
