We are back in Las Vegas again for Oracle Modern Customer Experience Conference! Instead of talking to customers and partners, we had the honor of chatting with UNLV Lee graduate students (@lbsunlv) and getting their feedback on how we envision the future of work, customers experience, marketing and data security.

Here’s a weird error message for my collection…
I’ve been working with a customer to setup a RMAN backup on his standby database (backup is going to SBT). After a while, we decided that we couldn’t avoid using the RMAN catalog so we created one.
Now, when using the catalog, we can backup the database from either the primary or standby instances and that will register to a shared catalog so we could restore from (more...)
In every way Niels de Brujin, Carsten Czarski, Christian Schwitalla and the whole DOAG team created an amazing event and has raised the quality compared to the last year.

If you speak often at conferences, sharing your screen to demo things, this could be helpful:
Throughout your presentation, the audience will be able to see your Twitter Handle, reminding them to include it with tweets about the event.

Licensing can be a confusing topic for many, but additional stress can be felt for those that use tools that cover multiple products and features that can span more than one management pack.
I’ve demonstrated how you can see what management packs are used and how to control this via EM13c, (also available in EM12c) but that can take you away from the task at hand. That’s where turning (more...)

To get the list of available data sets in R you can run the following.
No tech or management this week – this Friday Philosophy is about something in my home life.
This week we are in Singapore, our first ever visit. The main reason that we have come here is to look at some pictures painted by Sue’s Uncle Stan. They are also called the Changi Murals. Stanley Warren painted these murals when he was gravely ill in Changi during World War (more...)

The server locking up intermittently is one thing, and for all I know, maybe my fault? The incompetence of the hosting company is quite something else.
Just so you are aware why I was doing my nut yesterday, the hosting company had disabled my ability to force a power cycle of my dedicated server while they did a hardware test. They forgot to (more...)
