Laurent Schneider had an epiphany on Dynamic number of columns based on some postings from Tom Kyte.

Speaking of Tom Kyte, when he gives you The keys to Oracle… it is wise to use them.

Gokhan Atil finds some time savings from running Dbverify (dbv) in parallel.


Jonathan Lewis post about Compression Units – 5 and Exadata.

And Finally…

I have long watched the gaming realm with interest (even though my idea of an advanced video game is moving from Solitaire to Angry Birds). This article at Oracle SOA Suite - Team Blog discusses GaaS (Gaming as a Service). I'd love to see the area expand. There are some pretty exciting items coming from the realm of games now, after all. For instance robots that use inexpensive cameras with integrated motion controls based on Microsoft's innovative Kinect system.

A new game for phone owners over at Martin Widlake's Yet Another Oracle Blog, and you don’t even have to download an app: Friday Philosophy – New Game: Phone Zombies! (You Too can Play).
