LinkedIn Anniversary Messages

Thank you to everyone who has sent congratulations messages via LinkedIn, but I think LinkedIn might have mislead you somewhat… 🙂

When I left a previous job I switched my LinkedIn profile to say I was employed by ORACLE-BASE.com. That was in August 2008. I’ve never changed it since then, so now it says I’ve been “employed” by ORACLE-BASE.com for 6 years, hence the “anniversary”…

I bought my first domain and started putting articles on the net in July 2000. In August 2001 I renamed the site to oracle-base.com, so depending on how you look at it, the site is a little over 14 years old, or 13 with the current name…

So to everyone that has sent me a message congratulating me on my 6th anniversary, thinking that’s how long the website has existed, I would just like to point out is it the 14 year anniversary. 🙂

For those that think I’m employed by oracle-base.com, I’d just like to point out I’m not. I’ve got a regular job and I do the website for fun in my spare time. That’s why when you write to me asking for a job at oracle-base.com, I always say no. It’s not a company. It doesn’t employ anyone, not even me! 🙂

Anyway, sorry if LinkedIn has confused you, but thanks for the messages of support anyway. It’s very kind!

Cheers
