Oracle Priority Service Infogram for 24-OCT-2012



The enkitec company is offering a free webinar (as a lead-in to its paid ones), on Maximum Availability Architecture.

Somehow I only noticed this series at posting 3: Materialized view Concepts – Discussion Series 3.  Looks useful. It's over at IN ORACLE MILIEU…Beyond Knowledge.


As often happens with performance folks, this article is something you can bring up at the next party you attend. RDBMS performance is a romance magnet: Does the Parse Time Increase Linearly with the Number Of Child Cursors? Posted over at the Striving for Optimal Performance blog.

I seem to recall Jonathan Lewis discussing this subject before over at the Oracle Scratchpad blog: Skip Scan.


Redgate is offering a webinar on Improving Development Processes for Database Teams by Dominic Delmolino & Cary Millsap on 31-OCT-2012.


How to Migrate Oracle Database from Oracle Solaris 8 to Oracle Solaris 11. From Orgad Kimchi. And yes, that is his real name. And yes, he should be in films.



From Oracle Application Express - APEX (aka Dimitri Gielis): Moving your APEX app to the Oracle Cloud.

Simple. I like simple: Upgrading to APEX 4.2 in three steps

General Computing

At The Enterprise System Spectator, a confirmation of what I see when working at the local cafe. I'm no longer one of only one or two people on tablets. Most people there are on tablets: Tablet Computers to Begin Displacing Laptops.

...And Finally

Okay, so this article in Discover Magazine maintains that cooking is the technology that allowed us be so clever. So that tells me we must never teach gorillas to cook or risk a Planet of the Apes scenario. Don’t let gorillas near your outdoor grill, and if they are nearby and observing the process, toss them vegetables to distract them. Or run away.

A really cool list of life hacks. I’d only known or discovered one or two of them previously.
