Log Buffer #115: A Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs

Welcome to the 115th edition of Log Buffer, the weekly review of database blogs.

I must thank Paul for taking over at last minute for LB#114 last week, when, as he put it, ” . . . a killer combo of painkillers and the pain that the painkillers can’t kill . . . ” reduced to me a less-than Log-Buffer-capable state. Or to be more precise, to a writhing, benighted gargoyle of misery. (Too colorful?)

Anyway, the good news is that I’m better. Not all better, mind you. Between the tooth thing and my spending all my working time on a special project, there was nothing left for poor old Log Buffer. So, I face the choice: throw it open to you, LB’s loyal readers for your contributions; or adopt Paul’s approach1 from last week, and use the nifty AideRSS.

I’m going to bet on our readers. Let’s hear from you with your picks for best database blogs of the week gone by. I promise you a real, proper Log Buffer next week, from someone. If not me, well, Nick Westerlund still wants his go, and Ward Pond is back looking for a slot.

Until then, wish me luck with my angry tooth.

1. The truth is that I was briefly worried about having my job taken away by software. My concerns were allayed, at least partially, when I saw that the original software-built list of database blogs also included an item from “manscaping.com”, which I’m fairly sure had little or nothing to do with database administration.
