I have been working on my game recently and wanted to check out how to dig some caves. Without readily available software to do my excavations, I decided to give it a shot myself.

Welcome to Log Biffer #249, the weekly review of database blogs.
I am doing RAC attack today at UKOUG as well as giving a 2-hour exert technical session at 11:25am. The show so far? Sweet!
For those of you attending UKOUG today, there is a healthy dose of Pythian presentations on tap this afternoon. Actually, you can do it wall to wall 2:30pm to 6:30pm if you like.
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.

Simple messages are the most powerful. Keep it simple is the advice given by top technologists. One reason why blogs are extremely popular is their simplicity.

For me, even in the midst of emerging technology solutions, there’s still nothing like the old-fashioned Oracle CORE database arena.
Thanksgiving is here and the circular chain of thankfulness is going on. Clients are thankful that they have applications, applications are thankful to their databases, database are thankful to their DBAs, and DBAs are thankful to clients. And they all are thankful that there is weekly Log Buffer Edition, of which the latest is Log Buffer #247. :)
The topic of this post is really a question, What does all the new stuff coming down the line mean for those customers in the next 12-18 months? Oddly enough, the answer to that question is: Not very much. At least, not yet.
