It has been quite a long time since my last post and I’m sorry for that. The reason for this is that my workload in the company went more and more from the database side to the application side. That’s actually a double edged sword. On the one side it’s good for me to learn more and more about the application on the other side I’ve less time for playing/struggling around with Oracle. And that’s one reason why the Oracle related posts are missing in the last couple of months. On the other hand my free time got also rarely. Not because of lot of work but more because of the amount of hobbies I’ve and one of them (volunteer Fire Fighter in my home town) needed the last couple of months a little bit more time as estimated.
Anyway, all together what’s going on so far in my life:
- A good old friend of mine went to a new work to Berlin/Germany and I’m looking forward to visit him (sometime)
- My vacation is now booked (yes, the last one was just in October last year!) and it goes to Cuba in the middle of April
- With a break of 10 years I started skiing again this winter and I really enjoy it a lot. On Saturday I’ll go with some of my working colleagues to Flachau in Salzburg/Austria
- Yesterday I had the chance to visit the Oracle Austria headquater in Vienna and got a great course about 11g upgrade and a little bit of performance tuning features and other interesting new features.
