Infogram This Week: EBS, Performance, Technology, Legends, Linux, ADF, Exadata, Life


This week at the Oracle E-Business Technology blog:

Six Power-User Tips for Searching My Oracle Support (We ran this link last week, but it somehow went from five tips to six, so here it is again).


Charles Hooper has a good 'get down in the trenches' technical article on hints and why they may or may not get used. It reminds me of a key I've wanted on the PC for a long time: the 'Just do what I want!' key. It would be right next to the 'Right now, dammit!' key: I ORDERED a Hint – Why Won’t You Listen to Me?


It looks like the end for Moore's Law, but being an optimist about technology, I would say it's only a pause. There are technologies in the wings that will soon get the clock moving again. So my prediction is that Moore's Law will be back on the road in a few years. The Storage Mojo blog discusses it: Moore’s Wall: the end of Moore’s Law.


Chris Date is a legend in the realm of relational database theory, one of the leading theorists in the field and this series that Surachart Opun links to on his blog looks to be a great way to spend some virtual time with the master. SQL and Relational Theory Master Class (How to Write Accurate SQL Code) by C.J. Date


Nobody likes corruption (well, leaving politicians out of the discussion, at least), so here's some wisdom on Eliminating Silent Data Corruption in Linux over at BrightTalk.


Sale announcement over at Shay Shmeltzer's Weblog (in the spirit of the shopping season) on: Get an ADF Developer Certification - Special Price Promotion


The Pythian blogs bring us the happy news that Exadata OEM monitoring plugins are now available.

Life, the Universe, and Everything

I love going to zoos and aquariums, and I'm kicking myself that in all the times I've been Atlanta I've never been to the huge aquarium there. There's a nice film clip at this posting on it by The Laughing Squid: Georgia Aquarium, The World’s Largest Aquarium.
