Oracle Infogram This Week: Hyperion, MySQL, Search Filter, SQL Injection, Data Modelling, Time

Some tips on MySQL at Net tuts+: Top 20+ MySQL Best Practices


Over at Ritmann Mead Consulting, one of the best blogs out there, is: A Quick Recap on “The Best of” our OBIEE 11g Postings, so that's the best of the best. Definitely worth a look.

Search Filter

I've read and enjoyed the work of various members of Miracle, a company based in Denmark, for years. The legendary Oak Table is owned by its founder (the Oak Table is somewhat like the Round Table. Only it's not round. And has nothing to do with chivalry. And is all about Oracle performance experts. And has a lot more beer stains on it.). So when I stumbled across this search engine from Miracle Finland I thought I'd pass it along: Miracle Finland search engine.
