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

If you are using a Windows desktop, you need MobaXterm in your life! Version 7.1 has recently been released… I know you think you can’t live without Putty, Cygwin and/or Xming, but you really can.

WordPress 3.9 Released

Hot on the heels of WordPress 3.8.3 comes WordPress 3.9! The downloads and changelog are in the usual places. I’ve just manually initiated the auto-update on five blogs and all went through OK. Cheers Tim…




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.

Captain Support and TeamViewer

I recently read the news that LogMeIn have stopped their free service. I’m not a big user, but it’s handy to get into family PCs so I can sort stuff for them without having to talk them through things. As I was reaching for my credit card to pay the yearly fee for LogMeIn, I [...]




Data Pump Enhancements in Oracle Database 12c

Another one to file under “Not sexy but flippin’ awesome!” If you are a DBA, you are going to spend a lot of time with Data Pump. All roads seem to lead back to it. There are some more headline worthy features, like transportable database, but the two that jumped out at me were actually [...]




WordPress 3.8 Released

WordPress 3.8 has arrived. The download and changelog are in the usual places. The admin interface has had quite a big redesign. I think it looks neater, but I’m sure it will take a bit of getting used to. The nice thing is it’s mobile aware now. If I run it on my Nexus 7 in [...]




MobaXterm 6.6

I’ve sung the praises of MobaXterm many times. Just a quick note to say version 6.6 came out a few days ago. The download and change log are here. If you are using a desktop PC running windows, but spend your life connecting UNIX and Linux servers, like most DBAs and sys admins, you really [...]
