This week I was asked to create a component-diagram at my new customer. They use DIA
as an alternative for Visio. Funny thing is that it apparently orginated from Linux/Gnome, since the file-explorer resembles the File-browser of Gnome. But it has also a Windows installer.
When you start the tool from the windows menu, it's started with the toolbox docked or attached to the canvas. But when you use either dia.exe or diaw.exe (more...)
The mere reason that I dug into SSM yea

Today I wanted to create a VM with an Oracle SOA/BPM Suite 12c installation, since I'm to give a workshop on the installation of it. I used Oracle Linux 6 for my installations and the last few years I did play around quite a lot with it (for someone who is not a core systems administrator), to upgrade all my VM's to the latest update, remove obsolete (more...)

Using 'du -sh /home/oracle' we found that that folder consumed an unreasonable amount of space. In my case today I found the same. It turns out (more...)

And in time the root disk is cluttered up. So I want to remove the old kernels. With a little googling, I came up with a discussion thread in Oracle Communities: Oracle Linux Remove Old Kernels (Archived by now).

This week I attended the Twentieth Oracle Partner Network Fusion Middleware Forum
, this year in the Boscolo Hotel in Budapest, Hungary.
It was a great event, where a lot of subjects were covered, a lot of great people met. According to one of the product managers we were the smartest Oracle Region in the world (let's not uncover who said that...)
