The star of today’s video is Frits Hoogland and his son. This clip is from six years ago, and I don’t think Frits look any different today, but I’m guessing his son has changed a lot in that time. 🙂 Frits recently set sail for the land of Yugabyte. I hope he will come back to visit from time to time… 🙂
The star of today’s video is Tom Kyte. Here are two funny (to me) stories about my interactions with Tom.
On my first visit to OpenWorld in 2006, Tom walked up to me and introduced himself. I was blown away he even knew who I was. It was a massive ego trip. On my next visit to OpenWorld in 2007, I walked up to Tom and said casually, “Hi Tom”. He looked at me, looked down at my conference badge, looked at me again and said, “Hi Tim”. Needless to say, my ego was placed firmly back where it belonged. I still laugh when I think about it now.
At a later OpenWorld I was sitting at a table and someone was fanboying me. Tom came along and asked if he could sit at the same table. I said sure. My fanboy turned and said in a rather snarky tone, “And who are you?” Tom replied, “Hi. I’m Tom Kyte”. Fanboy’s face immediately dropped and at that exact moment in time I became invisible, and fanboy began to fanboy Tom. It was priceless!
I was moved to make this because I saw someone on Twitter complaining about the 30 character limit in Oracle. I figured they were probably using an old version of the database, but that’s their fault. A short video was convenient, as I was working this weekend, and didn’t have much free time. 🙂
The star of today’s video is Marcelle Kaye, in honour of her recent birthday. Hopefully we will get to meet up again one day…
