Peter Sorger tweeted a not-so-serious question that is the title of this post, “Does it mean you work on boring stuff too?”
Just to qualify that a bit, I work on a variety of things in my current job. Some I really enjoy, some I don’t enjoy so much. These days it’s really hard to be a specialist. To get stuff done you need a lot of different skills. I’m lucky that I (more...)
Looks DO matter! Today’s users are fed up with the current look and feel of their Oracle Forms / EBS System, many of which were developed last century. But we know how hard it can be to take the first step towards modernization. As Forms administrators / DBA’s your management many not want to believe there is any life left in these applications and won’t move forward. He probably thinks its wiser to move on. But (more...)
Some of our named credentials use a privileged account to perform root actions via sudo. That account is not the same as the OEM agent binary owner and does not belong to the binary owner’s o/s groups for security reasons.

PDP execution may have failed 3430 Insecure operation – please consult your administrator pbrun8.5.1-01: 3201.07 Exec of /usr/bin/pb_sudo failed: Operation not permitted
This past holiday break, I have mostly stayed in the garage – setting up a CNC machine and cutting all the things that I deemed cuttable by it.
Raymond is busy on CNC jobs
Owning a CNC machine has been on my list for a long time, it is just out of my price range for a high quality professional grade machine, or maybe not useful enough for a “toy” level DIY one. But every time I built (more...)
In my previous blog post I introduced the new Explicit Semantic Analysis (ESA) algorithm and gave an example of how you can build an ESA model and use it. Check out this link for that blog post.
In this blog post I will show you how you can manually create an ESA model. The reason that I'm showing you this way is that the workflow (in ODMr and it's scheduler) may not be for everyone. (more...)
Mid-eighties. I was studying Computer Science. Little did I know back then that this thing called "The Relational Data Model" (RDM) would become huge in the IT-industry. The topic was still hot in academia at that time. My luck was that I liked those courses. Predicate Logic, Set Theory, Database Design, SQL. I aced them all. It was no surprise then, that I ended up working with Oracle software
Have you seen ROWNUM and ROW_NUMBER in Oracle and wondered what the difference is? Learn what they are and the differences between Oracle ROWNUM vs Oracle ROW_NUMBER in this article. What Is Oracle ROWNUM? You might think that ROWNUM is a function in Oracle. However, it’s not a function. It’s a “pseudocolumn”. It acts like […]
In the World of Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions the hosting of the application is taken care of for you. You don’t need to worry where your data is hosted, or which company the hosting is outsourced to, right? That’s probably not the case. You’ll want to take careful notice of what happens to your data.
In many cases the company you pay for the service isn’t the one that hosts the servers. An (more...)

Your prayers have been answered with the recent release from Oracle of Oracle Synopsis. This is (more...)

If you are on any version of the database past 10.2.0.4, then savvy DBA’s may have noticed the following message popping up occasionally in their trace files
Warning: log write time 540ms, size 444KB
In itself, that is quite a nice little addition – an informational message letting you know that perhaps your log writer performance is worth closer investigation. MOS Note 601316.1 talks a little more about this message.
My first Fitbit Surge died. I bought the device in March 2015 and used it everywhere. I documented my user experience of the Fitbit Surge from Helsinki to Beijing and wore it the whole time, including during several marathons in the U.S. and Europe.
I loved using the thing and the experience of analyzing and comparing recorded activity data with other Fitbit users was great, and still is.
