I was thumbing through the photos in my iPhone from my Melbourne trip of August, where I went to present two sessions on Exadata in Insync12 from Pythian. I spent couple of hours on first and last day in sight-seeing or should I say my iPhone did the sight-seeing, and I nursed him. As I was going through the photos, I realized I was kind of watching those places first time. There were many things which were present in the photos, but I never saw them with my own eyes while walking or traveling in the trams or cabs.
Thank you to all who attended our Open House last night to help us celebrate Pythian’s 15th Anniversary. It was a great night! Thank you to all those who helped make it happen. Check out a few highlights from the evening.
With the summer approaching in Australia and Winter making inroads in Canada, the contrasts are also vivid in the blog posts of Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL. Relishing this distinguished medley, Log Buffer Edition is blossoming with new blog posts in Log Buffer #286.
Today, I had some bit of fun and created a micro-web service as a one-liner. But then I thought that using almost 70 characters for a web service was awfully long-winded. Surely there was a way to make our Dancer more efficient. But how? How about… by getting a MC involved?

Recently, we had a situation where a customer asked us to move Master Database from Local Drive to SAN drive. I have outlined the steps for the task.
As I’ve become Director of Communities for IOUG recently, I’m intimately involved in many aspects of leading the IOUG community. One of the areas the user group is pursuing all the time is finding new speakers, and it takes a lot of convincing before community members actually start presenting. There are many of you who have exciting projects and implementations to share but can’t quite convince themselves to actually present.
In honour of our fifteenth anniversary, I have assembled a few nostalgic items from our earliest years in business.
If the basics are right, then the foundation is more likely to be solid, and the growth on that foundation is almost sure to follow the progressive path. Oracle, SQL Server, and MySQL bloggers are striving hard to set the basics of technology in order to help lay a sound foundation for the readers so that they can grow leaps and bounds in the right direction. This Log Buffer Edition covers just that.
