The Amazing Spider-Man 2

I’ve just got back from watching The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Wow, that is one seriously long film! At 2 hours and 22 minutes, it’s a good 1 hour and 22 minutes too long… I guess there are two sides to this film: Action Scenes: During the action this films it is brilliant. Really over the […]

Running scripts in CDBs and PDBs in Oracle Database 12c

You’ve been sold on the whole concept of the multitenant option in Oracle 12c and you are launching full steam ahead. Your first database gets upgraded and converted to a PDB, so you start testing your shell scripts and bang! Broken! Your company uses CRON and shell scripting all over the place and the multitenant architecture has […]

KeePass 2.26 Released

KeePass 2.26 has recently been released. I would suggest going with the portable version, which is an unzip and go application. If you want to know how I use KeePass, check out my article called Adventures with Dropbox and KeePass. Cheers Tim…

MobaXterm 7.1 Released

WordPress 3.8.3 – Auto Update

WordPress 3.8.3 came out yesterday. It’s a small maintenance release, with the downloads and changelog in the usual places. For many people, this update will happen automatically and they’ll just receive and email to say it has been applied. I’m still not sure what to make of the auto-update feature of WordPress. Part of me likes […]

OUGN : Summary

With the exception of a 5+ hour layover in Amsterdam, the trip home was pretty straight forward. I flew to Amsterdam with Lonneke Dikmans, Ronald Luttikhuizen and Roel Hartman. During my rather excessive layover, I played catchup with all the internet stuff I missed during the trip… I must say OUGN 2014 was a pretty cool […]

OUGN : Day 2

Day 2 started really early. Having got to bed about 02:00, I was up at 05:30 and thinking about my 08:30 session. The previous evening’s conversation with Brynn was playing on my mind a little (in a good way), thinking how that conversation should/would affect my session. The session itself seemed to go well. I […]

OUGN : Day 1

The journey to Norway was pretty straight forward, but during the second flight, from Amsterdam to OSLO, my nose and eyes started to stream. I didn’t feel ill, but I was starting to worry I might be getting ill right before a conference. I landed in Norway, got the train to the centre of OSLO […]
