First Impressions of Kubuntu 9.04

While it is slightly more stable, within minutes I had had my first crash on the panel. I had several more, not hardware-related. Now these could be the fault of the applet developers and not KDE itself, but it certainly soured my first look. I will probably nuke this install and reinstall with the KDE3 remix over the weekend.

Meetup.com Confirms Automatic MySQL Sponsorship Ended

The bad news is that whatever agreement MySQL AB had with Meetup.com has ended. Unfortunately, this agreement has ended, so there’s going to have to be a more manual process to get MySQL to sponsor the meetup groups. At its cheapest, a year of meetup.com is $144. The good news is that Giuseppe and Dups (as well as the local Sun/MySQL folks in Boston who also sponsor the pizza and soda we have) have expressed that they are dedicated to sponsoring these user groups, so nobody has to go around digging for spare change just yet. Here’s the sad e-mail I received…

Installing APEX 4.0 and 3.2 on Oracle 10gR2 on Mac OS X Leopard (Intel)

Few days ago, I have put together the Quick Install Guide for Oracle 10g Release 2 on Mac OS X Leopard (Intel). I did mention that it would be cool to get APEX working as well but, apparently, APEX isn’t supposed to be running on Oracle 10g Release 2 Database on OS X as few people pointed our on the blogs. However, looks like few people did manage to run APEX on 10g using Embedded PL/SQL Gateway. ong story short, I was able to install APEX successfully using the native Mac OS X Oracle 10g Database and here is how…

What Exactly is Swappiness?

This is an issue that keeps rearing its ugly head over and over again, and since it greatly affects performance, it is most important that DBAs of any DMBS running on Linux come to grips with it. So I decided to do some research and try different settings on my notebook. Here are my findings.
