Humor, PeopleSoft, SQL Developer, JDE Survey, EBS, Tools

Geek Humor

We start off our first issue after the Thanksgiving break with this, from Dark Roasted Blend:

Q: How many Heisenbergs does it take to change a light bulb?
A: If you know the number, you don’t know where the light bulb is.

PeopleSoft Tip

The PeopleSoft Tipster has a good tip for quickly exporting multiple projects here, but perhaps of more interest still is the PeopleSoft wiki that links from the posting.

SQL Developer

SQL Developer is one of those great Oracle products with a name that is, well, not thought out (ever try to search Google for info on SQL Developer? You'll get back half of from the search). But it’s an outstanding product, name and all,  there's a new early adapter release out, as announced by our SQL Developer team:

On Wednesday this week, the SQL Developer team  published and announced on the OTN forum, the second Early Adopter release of Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeling.

Following a successful first early adopter, with over 5000 downloads, many changes were rolled into the second early adopter based on feedback from the internal and external audience. 
  • Use this page on OTN, for access to initial documentation and supporting collateral. This site includes more online demonstrations and sample models, so that you need not have access to a database to view and test data models.
JDE Survey

The JD Edwards Advisor blog ran a poll on future spending on JDE in the face of the current economy. The news is good, overall. Have a read here.

EBS Blog of Note

Want to get EBS release data and other key bits of news and information right from the source? The Oracle E-Business Suite Technology blog is a great place for it! Rather than link to individual items, here's the main page, which you can add through your RSS reader (you, ahem, are using one of those, yes?):

Computer Tools

Eddie Awad's blog has 5 Tools That Make You a More Productive Computer User (not just Oracle users, though we'd appreciate it if you'd at least think about Oracle while using the tools). You can find his posting here.
