For the final day of UKOUG there are quite a few Pythian presentations. Unfortunately a lot of them happen at the same time, so it won’t be possible to attend them all live.
On tap for Tuesday is a 2-hour master class from Michael Abbey, along with an all-day drop-in RAC attack workshop with Alex Gorbachev and the RAC SIG.
Another December has started and you know what it means right? It’s the Christmas time? NO! It’s time for UKOUG Technology and e-Business Suite 2011 conference! There are not many things that can make a passionate Apps DBA more excited than that.

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.

My colleages and I want to set up a LAN radio station, so that we can all groove to the same soundtrack. To make things interesting, we want to be able to dynamically add songs to the playlist. From any machine. And since I don’t really have time to do something like that, I’m setting myself a deadline of one evening to get it running. Got it? Good. For it’s time to rip our shirts. And dance the Haka.
