Thanks to everyone who attended my presentation “Queues, Pools and Caches” at Hotsos 2012. I had a blast and I hope you did too. I posted the slides and paper on SlideShare for your enjoyment.

There were many questions asked after the presentation, so I thought I’ll post a short FAQ to address those:
This week is packed with conference news, birthdays, tutorials, awards, and much more. From Pythian proud recipient of HIO Employer Excellence Award to the health checks of SQL Server, and from hints in stored outlines to the birthday of Paul Vallee, this Log Buffer Edition has it all in Log Buffer #262.

Something like a contact sheet for the website, if you will. Well, let’s see how hard that would be.
With new blog posts covering newest technologies, discovered bugs and anomalies, this Log Buffer Edition is presented for you. In this Log Buffer #261, you would savor posts from Oracle, SQLServer and MySQL arena. Enjoy

Last week I returned to Denver, Colorado for the RMOUG Training Days conference. I had gone last year as an attendee, but this year I was invited to give my presentation on the Oracle 11g ADR (slides and info at the end of this post). While I haven’t attended very many conferences yet, I can’t imagine a bigger bang for your buck than RMOUG Training Days.
