I left work after an hour yesterday and spent the day cycling between sleeping in bed and sleeping in the bath. In the evening I had a Machu Picchu incident and started to puke every few minutes until I eventually fell asleep. At about 05:00 I woke up, got in the bath and slept for another 2 hours. It was then time to leave for UKOUG Database SIG! 🙂
I was originally down to do a single session. I agreed to do a second session when someone pulled out sick. 🙂 The agenda had me up first and third. I asked Jonathan if I could do a swap and he agreed, so I was up first and second. That gave the opportunity to leave if I felt bad…
My two talks were:
- Pluggable Databases – What they will break and why you should use them anyway!
- It’s raining data! Oracle databases in the cloud.
They seemed to go OK and there were some nice comments on Twitter. 🙂
As I expected, the Lemsip and adrenalin was wearing off by the time I finished my second talk and I had started to sweat like crazy. I had a quick chat with some folks during the break, then I got in my car and came home.
Sorry for doing a hit and run! Next time I’ll hang around for the day. I hope everyone else’s sessions wen well!
I’m off to bed now!
PS. I amended my Secure External Password Store article to address Jonathan’s question. 🙂
PPS. With the todays update (27/01/2017) of the extended support waiver extension (Doc ID 742060.1), your timescales for upgrades may now differ somewhat. Added a new slide. 🙂
