Oracle Priority Service Infogram for 21-MAR-2012


An announcement from ZDNet: Oracle's Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel 2 arrives with Linux 3.0 kernel, btrfs.


From the Oracle Systems Blog Austria blog, a rundown on Great Solaris 10 features paving the way to Solaris 11.


For those who really enjoy getting the top off and poking around in the wiring of what program memory is up to comes this article: How Memory Allocation Affects Performance in Multithreaded Programs at Technet.


A couple of items of interest to Essbase mavens at the EPM / OBI - Product Assurance Engineering (/PAE) blog:

Oracle Essbase Release - New Tuning Features 

EXALYTICS - Oracle® Essbase Patch Set (PS): 

Access Manager

Haven't seen this Oracle blog before the ISV Migration Center Blog. They posted a handy set of links: Oracle Access Manager 11g - useful links.


Over at Martin Giffy D'Souza on Oracle APEX he goes into a nice review for beginners, or non-beginners for that matter: How APEX Processes Various Conditions and Validations.


I haven't tested this script over at OraQA to see if it works, but it sure looks like one of those items you stick away in a folder marked 'Will save the day when needed' if it does: How to convert an Internet HTML Table to CSV format in SQL


A couple of good finds from The Tom Kyte Blog this week: Two things I learned this week...


It's been a while since we've seen something new on the best indexing blog out there, Richard Foote's Oracle Blog, but the wait is over: Indexed Organized Tables – An Introduction to IOT Secondary Indexes (A Second Face).


I got all excited when I saw the title of this article over at Oracle Scratchpad: ACS. Wow, Jonathan Lewis is talking about Advanced Customer Services on his blog. Alas, it is a different ACS. But it's still great reading, as you would expect from Jonathan Lewis.


The Proactive Support EPM and BI blog reports on a new addition to the upgrade advisor family (stork and all): Upgrade Advisor: Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) from to

Other Stuff Department

This isn't Oracle. or even computer related, but certainly is an interesting article that Eddie Awad tweeted: Why Bilinguals Are Smarter I wonder if anyone has done any studies of other correlations on this. This is not particularly good news here in the States, of course. For one thing it means that the Swiss are the smartest people in the world since they are practically 100% multilingual. But it also means we may not be the sharpest tools on the shelf. You know the old line: What do you call someone who speaks two languages? Bilingual. How about someone with several languages? Multilingual. And someone who only speaks one language? American.
