Wearables Should be Stylish

To no one’s surprise, Apple announced the Apple Watch today.

Very apropos because I just read Sandra Lee’s (@SandraLee0415) post over on VoX about fashionable tech, one of Ultan’s (@ultan) main talking points about wearables.

Ultan, our wearables whisperer, has style and flair; if you’ve ever met him, you know this. His (and Sandra’s) point about wearable tech needing to be stylish is one that Apple has made, again, to (more...)

Yolo: Get Your Wearable Tech On for the #OOW14 and #JavaOne Meetup

Just ordered a Tikker and a Moto 360 . I’ve now run out of wrist space for  smartwatches and fitness bands of all sorts, so maybe it’s time I retired something! Then again…

Motorola Moto 360 image from WSJ.com

The Motorola Moto 360 was launched last week (4-Sept-2014) and has sold out online already. Luckily,  I’ll be able to pick one up in store in my local Best Buy. The initial reviews are so-so (more...)

An idealized log management and analysis system — from whom?

I’ve talked with many companies recently that believe they are:

  • Focused on building a great data management and analytic stack for log management …
  • … unlike all the other companies that might be saying the same thing :)
  • … and certainly unlike expensive, poorly-scalable Splunk …
  • … and also unlike less-focused vendors of analytic RDBMS (which are also expensive) and/or Hadoop distributions.

At best, I think such competitive claims are overwrought. Still, it’s a genuinely (more...)

On Disney Parks, Data Science, Drones and Wearables

As the parent of a toddler, I have no choice but to pay attention to Disney and its myriad of products and services.

Case in point, this Summer we took our daughter to Disneyland for the first time, which was a whole thing. Pause to h/t Disneyland expert, Friend of the ‘Lab and colleague Kathy for all her park and travel protips.

Being who I am, I found myself wandering around Disneyland and California Adventure thinking (more...)

Behold: The Simplified UI Rapid Development Kit

Editor’s note: The recent release of the Oracle Applications Cloud Simplified User Interface Rapid Development Kit represents the culmination of a lot of hard work from a lot of people. The kit was built, in large part, by Friend of the ‘Lab, Rafa Belloni (@rafabelloni), and although I tried to get him to write up some firsthand commentary on the ADF-fu he did to build the kit, he politely declined. 

We’re developers (more...)

Sometimes the cause of a TNS error is ….

A couple of months ago one of my customers had a failed data ware house report. There was a ORA-12592 (TNS) error message generated.
I turned out not to be the only TNS error. During a couple of weeks similar TNS-errors were generated. Not only the ORA-12592 error but also ORA-12514 and ORA-12571 errors.

We did some extensive sqlnet tracing but we didn’t find the cause there.

Finally the cause turned out to be a (more...)

How to make a time consistent export dump using the expdp datapump utility

In those old days when there was the exp utility we made a time consistent export dump by using the consistent=y parameter.
But today, in fact a couple of years already, we mostly use the expdp datapump utility. How should we make a time consistent export using datapump?
For that we use the flashback_time or flashback_scn parameter. In this post I show you how to set the flashback_time parameter.

The flashback_time parameter needs as input (more...)

Monitor Dell PERC when running on Oracle Virtual Server 3.x

In this article I will try to explain how to monitor your Dell Raid Controller with Cloud Control when running Oracle Virtual server 3.x (OVS3.x).

Some time ago a physical drive broke down on one of our Dell PowerEdge Servers. Not causing any problem because it was configured in a raid set using the Dell build in PowerEdge Raid Controller( hereafter PERC). However, we did not notice this breakdown until also a second (more...)

How to hide login data of sql-scripts on Windows

One of the often given advices on hardening a database is to run scripts without broadcasting your login data at the same time. According to Arup Nanda in his famous articles on “Project Lockdown” you have three options to run your scripts without letting everybody in on your password secrets:

  1. Start your scripts under /nolog and add your login to the SQL-script your running
  2. Start SQL*Plus under /nolog and add the login at the beginning (more...)

Context in UX – What it is, what it isn’t, and why it’s important

Our location is relentlessly tracked by our mobile devices. Our online transactions – both business and social – are recorded and stored in the cloud. And reams of biometric data will soon be collected by wearables.  Mining this contextual data offers a significant opportunity to enhance the state of human computer interaction. But this begs the question: what exactly is ‘context’ ?

Consider the following sentence:8594672237_09fb6c89b3_z
