Ten year anniversary (again)…

I’ve been having a 10 year anniversary of internet publishing for the best part of a year now.

I started publishing scripts and articles on the internet some time early in 2000, so really my 10 year anniversary was some time last year. I can’t remember the exact date though.

The first time my site appears on the Way Back Machine is June 2001 under the name Since this is the first recording I can find of the site, I guess it means it was off the search engine radar before then, so this could be considered the official start of the site (as seen by the world), making this my 10 year anniversary right about now.

Later that year I changed the name of the site, so the first listing of on the Way Back Machine is in October 2001. I guess I have another 10th anniversary around the corner. 🙂

I started this blog in June 2005, so it’s only my 6th anniversary of blogging. That’ll be another 10th anniversary in a few years time then. 🙂

I think I’ll stick with 2000 as being the start of it all because I’m getting old and it’s easy to remember. How times flies when you’re geeking out…

  1. Congrats sir 🙂 . The web site is indeed one of the best in the oracle community 🙂 . I am sure its going to be growing and becoming even more popular for many many more years to come!

    One question though, how did you choose the name oracle-base 🙂 ? Any story behind it ?


  2. Excellent site.. many more anniversaries in due course and excellent guide to the commintiy


  3. Hi.

    I wanted “”, but somebody had already registered it, so I went for “”.

    The ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_BASE environment variables were the inspiration for the choice. There wasn’t a lot of thought in the choice really. I just wanted something that related to Oracle in the title. These were the first things that came to mind. 🙂



  4. Congrats Tim. I remember this site from very early on and I have always stuck with it as being very informative and up to date. And believe you me that it’s help in my progress over the years 🙂

  5. Congratulations Tim!

    This is one of the best and most useful Oracle related sites that I’ve seen.
    Clearly written articles, installation guides, useful scripts and much more.

    I’m basically using this site as a personal wiki 🙂

    Keep on good work!
