Architects design space. A building is just a way to create spaces. Information architects at Oracle design relationships with abstract concepts. So far the main way we have to create visible spaces for our users is by projecting pixels onto glass screens.

I have been considering writing this article for quite some time now.

This week one of our developers highlighted the fact that the DBMS_SCHEDULER on one of our 18.104.22.168 databases was running jobs an hour later than scheduled until just recently, when the clocks went back (26/10/2014) for British Summer Time (BST) …and now they’re running on-time again!

Inspired by the recent furore around Shellshock I decided that it was time to try an alternative to bash. By the very grown up process of shutting my eyes and poking my finger at the results of a search for “shell” I ended up at fish shell, described by the project as “a command line shell for the 90s”. I’m presuming that this means the 1990s and is not a minimum age requirement.
I have installed SQL Developer (with JDK) on Windows many times before, and almost all the time I receive the system error bellow when trying to execute it by the first time. Due to this, I decided to publish the…
