Presenting at UKOUG 2012…

I’ve got confirmation that I’m presenting at the UKOUG 2012 conference in December. As I’ve said before, I like seeing places, but I hate the travelling, so I’m not looking forward to having to get to the ICC in Birmingham. That’s one killer 4 mile journey I’m going to have to endure… See you there! Cheers Tim…




BGOUG: I’m on my way…

I’m at the airport waiting for my flight to Sofia (via Munich), on my way to the BGOUG conference in Hissarya. It’s early and I’m totally knackered. I had a killer tabata-style circuits class last night and a nightmare tabata-style kettlebell class the night before. I still have bruises from the latter. If only I could [...]




InSync11 : 16-17 August 2011…

A few weeks ago one of the AUSOUG committee asked me to submit some abstracts for InSync11. I got the official acceptance through today, so travel approval permitting, I’ll be in Sydney on August 16-17 to speak at the conference. I’m not looking forward to the flights, but it will be really cool to see the [...]

The BGOUG conference started today. It’s a pity the recent family stuff meant I couldn’t submit a paper for this event. I’m gonna miss all my Bulgarian friends. Hope it all goes well and see you soon. Cheers Tim… PS. Sve: I would have loved to sit in the front row of your presentation to [...]




ODTUG: I’m in Washington D.C…

Well, I actually got on the first standby flight. It was delayed by over an hour, then we had to wait in a hot plane for an eternity for a runway slot, but at least I made it. When I got to the hotel I met up with a few of the other Oracle ACEs [...]




Maybe I am going to BGOUG…

Since this morning the flight status has changed from canceled to OK, but the airport don’t seem to be committing to it either way. Looks like I will be going to the airport at least. Cheers Tim…




I can’t go to the BGOUG event :(

Unfortunately I will not be at the Bulgarian Oracle User Group (BGOUG) event. That pesky volcanic ash cloud has put a stop to my flights. As I’ve said before, the BGOUG event feels like a big family gathering, so I’m really annoyed at having to miss it. Sorry Tim…
