Merry Christmas + A Little Present Of Sorts December 23, 2008

Posted by Richard Foote in Richard's Musings.

I just want to wish all my readers a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful, index rebuild free New Year !!

I have a number of topics in the pipeline for 2009, including a look at Index Organized Tables, a discussion on the SYS_OP_COUNTCHG function and how Oracle uses it to calculate the Clustering Factor (not very well in some cases) and the systematic destruction of a number of index related myths that just refuse to go away. So beware all you little myth spreaders out there …   😉

2008 has been a great year for me personally with lots happening. However, the biggest and most wonderful surprise of all was not being awarded an Oracle ACE Director, but last night when I was awarded the The World’s Greatest Business Mind. I’m so very honoured and humbled by this award and I would like thank everyone who made it all possible, especially mum and dad.

I’m going to celebrate by enjoying some lovely mince pies while listening to David Bowie and Bing Crosby as they perform that Christmas Classic “Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth“. Enjoy !!

Have a great New Year everyone 🙂
