It’s time for another phenomenal Collaborate conference next week, made even more fabulous by the fact that I’ll be there for the first time! For some reason, Collaborate is one of the few big user group conferences I haven’t made it to before, so when my boss asked me to go and present at it I leapt at the chance.
Originally, I had one presentation timeslot, but then Alex Gorbachev of Pythian / Oak Table (more...)
For some time now, I’ve been creating blog posts that walk you through using some of the Enterprise Manager technology to perform specific tasks. For example, there’s one here on setting up Chargeback in EM 22.214.171.124. I’ve never been really satisfied with the way these blog posts turn out, as to document a step by step process like this takes lots of screenshots and you end up with a post that’s a (more...)

Yesterday I ran into the situation where PowerPoint would only open minimized on the task bar and nothing I could do would get it to budge from there. The only way I could get PowerPoint to start and be displayed on any monitor was to start it in safe mode. (more...)
Last week, I was letting you know about an opportunity to hear all about the Snap Clone functionality with EMC storage. This week, there’s a similar presentation on Wednesday, March 4 at 8AM PT (San Francisco), 11AM ET (New York), 4PM GMT (London) and 5PM CET (Paris), only this time we’re discussing Snap Clone with NetApp storage instead.

A little while back I posted a blog on the official Oracle Enterprise Manager blog on using Enterprise Manager 12c Snap Clone with EMC storage. Last week, I also presented on exactly the same topic at the RMOUG Training Days in Denver, Colorado, and there was quite a bit of interest in the subject.
Given that level of interest, I thought I’d let you know about another opportunity to hear all about it even if (more...)
Yet again, it was a fantastic time at the RMOUG Training Days 2015 conference, as it has been every other year I have attended it. That is in no small measure due to the incredible work of the organizing committee, and in particular the Training Days Director, my colleague Kellyn Pot’Vin Gorman of dbakevlar.com fame. For me personally, the travel to get to Denver Colorado was somewhat more daunting than in previous years (see (more...)
It’s that time of the year again, when one of the best grass roots Oracle user group conferences takes place, the Rocky Mountain Oracle User Group Training Days in Denver Colorado. I’ve been privileged enough to present at this conference several times in the past, and always have an absolute blast at it, so I try to submit a few papers each year. This year, I had three papers accepted. Two of them were designed (more...)
Just a quick note here to say I’ve added a new blog post to the official Enterprise Manager blog site. You can find it here.
