Things have certainly been busy lately so I haven’t had much of a chance to get back here for a while. Busy at work, busy at home, busy at play and even busy with a new David Bowie album to enjoy !! And yes, “The Next Day” is an absolutely stunning album by the great man 🙂

While answering a backlog of questions today however, I noticed the blog has recently just passed a rather significant milestone. A little like driving the car and being too busy listening to David Bowie on the stereo to notice that the odometer has just passed 200,000 kms (yes my car is getting on a bit), I missed out on seeing the blog visit counter go past 1,000,000 visits. I kinda get excited by these milestones, see how I was when I passed 10,000, so I’m a little sad to have missed the party. That said, 1 million is quite a number for a humble little blog that doesn’t discuss Lady Gaga or religion (very often).

So thank-you to everyone that has visited and contributed to all the various discussions over the years.

The good news, I have a couple of new articles that will hopefully make an appearance in the next few days so the drought is nearly over 🙂 But first, I have a new episode of Game of Thrones Season III to get through 🙂

I’m Back !! Oracle Index Internals Seminar Scheduled in Europe For June. April 3, 2013

Posted by Richard Foote in Oracle Index Seminar, Richard's Musings.

It’s been quite a while but I’ve recently been asked to present my Indexing Seminar in Europe for Oracle University and at this stage, all the planets seem to be aligning themselves to make this a distinct possibility.

Seminar details are as follows:

Location: Bucharest, Romania

When: 17-18 June 2013

Cost: 2000 RON (approx. 450 EUR)

Enrolment: Follow this link

This will be a unique opportunity as I just don’t get the chance in my schedule to present this any more, to learn some rather interesting and useful information on all things to do with Oracle indexes. Note there are currently no plans to schedule other events in the foreseeable future, this is it.

Hopefully you’ll get the opportunity to attend and I’ll get to meet you in beautiful Bucharest 🙂
