My guess is that there were about 100 people in the room and it looked like automatic "won" but not by much. Maybe 55 percent automatic and 45 manual ... so there are still a whole bunch of people nervous about using that functionality.

Yesterday I was informed about someone stealing my content again. I take a pretty hard line to this these days. I used to be a little unsure about how to approach it, but now I just hit them with a DMCA take-down notice straight away. I’ve not got time to explain to everyone and their dog about copyright law…

However I had a recent requirement to use a web service that makes use of Digest Authentication. If you have look at the UTL_HTTP SET_AUTHENTICATION subprogram, it only addresses Basic authentication (and, apparently, Amazon S3 which looks intriguing).
After years of hounding from me, Noel (@noelportugal) made the jump to Android usage and development about a year ago. He started with a Nexus 7, the first generation one, but it wasn’t until he got a phone, the Moto X, that the transformation was complete.
So now, Noel is mixed ecosystem guy.
We’ve had Chromecasts since they were announced last year (they’re awesome), and with the recent release of the (more...)

VARIABLE monitored_sid number; begin SELECT sid into :monitored_sid from v$session where audsid=USERENV('SESSIONID'); end; / select b.value "table fetch continued rows" from V$SESSTAT b where b.SID = :monitored_sid and b.STATISTIC# = (SELECT STATISTIC# FROM V$STATNAME WHERE NAME='table fetch continued row');
I create a test script with the problem query and put this code after it to (more...)
