A handful of tier 1 shows throughout the calendar year do just that. The primary focus is on the user community, the people who live the software from day-to-day.

DBD::Oracle v1.43_00 on CPAN — Now with 100% Less DBIS

A new trial version of DBD::Oracle is on CPAN. The meat of this release is the awesome work Martin Evans did in the murky core of the beast. He explains it better, but basically his magic results is a much faster DBD::Oracle on thread-enabled perls. This being said, the changes he did are significant (2.3K lines changed according to Git), and we would be very grateful for anybody finding the time to try and install that trial version before it goes live (which, unless something wrong is found, should be in 2 weeks).

Oracle VM: What If You Have Only 1 HDD System?

In my previous post, I described how to install Oracle VM and Oracle VM Manager on the same sandbox. However, to start playing with Oracle VM v3 you need to configure some storage to be used for new VM hosts. The problem is that Oracle states that you should allocate a full HDD for VM host storage. If you have just one HDD in your system, then you are in trouble since part of it is already occupied by the Dom0 host.
