Profile Information

About Me:
I've been using Oracle since 1992. I am the chair of the UKOUG Development Engineering SIG chair. I was made an Oracle ACE in 2003 (in the days before they were called ACEs). Also in 2003 I won Oracle Magazine's OTN Contributor of the Year.

I work as a consultant for Logica. It says "software architect" on my business card, because nobody really knows what one of those is. Basically I am a database developer, (i.e. mainly PL/SQL) but I also work as a DBA, systems analyst, designer and business consultant. I also cook.

Back and blogging again

It's been a long time since I did anything on this site. I've been taking a break from cyberspace. The forums and the blog were getting too much, on top of my work. But I think I've got my work-life balance back under control (famous last words). Anyway, I've started blogging again, and participating in the forums.



But really I'm just updating this because the last message I posted here was so negative. Blogger did sort out the problem, so that's cool.



I feel better now… Continue

Blogger has eaten Radio Free Tooting

I am bummed out. This is the second time in six months that Blogger has taken my blog down. The last time was because they thought it was a spam blog. This time the blogspot site is just not there. I get a stripped down version of the dashboard instead.



There are a few other people in the Help forums who seem to have had something similar happen to them. Unfortunately these outages have been occurring since 29-JAN and there doesn't seem to be anyone who has managed to get their site… Continue

Andrew:

Mostly I have been head down working. Big project and unreasonable deadlines (are there any other kind?).

Go-live, assuming we finish UAT is March 27, so I may have a little more time after that.

yes, I obviously need a higher res version of it. Not to mention one that doesn't make it look as though I've been trepanned.
