Oracle Priority Service Infogram for 14-NOV-2012

At Upgrade your Database - NOW! some wisdom on Migration of a database from 32bit to 64bit.


The Pythian blog discusses an oft encountered problem: Case study: How to return a good SQL execution plan from 10g days after 11g migration?


Yuri over at Pythian got a really good technical explanation of an aspect of RMAN and shared it in his blog, so I thought I'd share that with Infogram readers: RMAN: Corrupt block … let’s re-read … nope it all good.


Another in the series: Stupid Programming Tricks #14 -- SET EMPTYMEMBERSETS ON doesn't work they way you might think, at Cameron's Blog For Essbase Hackers.

Oracle Appliance

Some notes on privacy and the lack thereof at ZDNet:  Yes, the FBI and CIA can read your email. Here's how.
