Off to the UKOUG general session then a fun-filled day of presentations. It wraps up later this afternoon with my rman best practices event at 5:45pm.
anticipate seeing people from all over the continent at UKOUG. The attendance over the past few years has been growing and nothing short of astounding.

After the first day and a half, the show has yet again lived up to all expectations.

It all started with the database and everything they have touched since has turned to gold.
