BGOUG Spring 2013…

On Thursday I’ll be flying out to Bulgaria for BGOUG Spring 2013. It’s been about 18 months since I’ve visited the people over there, so I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in.   This will be my first conference of the year, so I’m feeling a little nervous at the moment. I’m sure the […]

BGOUG 2011: Wrap-Up

So that’s another BGOUG finished and once again it was a great event. Every time I go I recognize more faces and my Bulgarian dancing gets a little better. I’m already looking forward to the next one I get to attend. A big thanks to Milena and the gang for organizing everything. There was literally […]

BGOUG 2011: Day 2…

Day 2 started with a very tired Doug Burns presenting “Performance and Stability with Oracle Database 11g’s SQL Plan Management”. As with his previous talk, this was firmly rooted in his practical experience of the feature and as such contained a mixture of positive and negative results. Essentially it boiled down to, this works great […]

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 […]

BGOUG Conference…

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 […]

Bulgarian Oracle User Group (BGOUG)…

I’m back home from the BGOUG event now, having had a great time in Bulgaria. It was really cool to hook up with everyone again. I’m not great with names, but I usually remember a face and there were lots of familair faces. Dimitri Gielis and Patrick Wolf did some great presentations on APEX. I […]

BGOUG… I’m here…

I made it to Sofia, Bulgaria, without so much as a thin layer of volcanic ash on me. I got to the airport and my flight was not listed on the departures board, even though it was on the airport and Lufthansa website. I asked at the desk and they said everything was fine. What’s […]

On my way to BGOUG…

I’m at the airport and checked in, so it all looks good so far for my trip to Bulgaria (BGOUG). The ladies on the check in desk said that Lufthansa flights were running yesterday, but the website had them marked as canceled, which means all yesterdays fuss was about nothing… Cheers Tim…

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…
