It used to be that all you needed for a career in computing was a lack of social skills, poor dress sense and an ability to grow facial hair.

Now, not only are we expected to get qualifications, we need a positive attitude, certifications and so it seems now, a blog!

So to the subject of mine. This will be my collection of hints and tips that are too old or obscure for publication anywhere else and while predominantly oracle based, will not be exclusively so!

However, what this will not be, is just another collection of tips that are widespread, or my attempt at an Oracle FAQ, I simply don’t have the time or the ego!

And finally, come the UKOUG conference 2007, it will be my platform for for mocking those otherwise respected luminaries who believe that All Bar One in Brindley place ( a good place to get a pint; those who have an apparently exhaustive knowledge of Oracle, but seem incapable of entering the words CAMRA and BIRMINGHAM into a search engine!
