OTN Appreciation Day : Function Result Cache

Feature: Function Result Cache.

Why : because this feature is Simple.
It is_almost_ no hassle to activate, and it had a Good Effect where we needed it.
Simple.

Why not: If you need this feature badly, you probably got something wrong in the design of the application. But hey: our app was an off-the-shelf COTS package, and the users took advantage of the software in ways that had never been envisaged 10 years ago...

Why not : because it didnt work in our case, despite all the RTFM we did. But one of my colleagues was persistent... and we found a workaround. Now it works like a charm.

Thx Peter Swier for persisting.

Thx Tim Hall for re-vitalizing my blog-postings.

More on FRC: Later.
Or come see me somewhere...
At SIOUG in Portoroz,
at HROUG in Rovinj,
at DOAG in N├╝rnberg,
or at UKOUG in Birmingham(UK).

Or... provide me with a desk to work + some coffee on one of my motorcycle tours  ...

Plans, plans, plans

As a conference-speaker, you have to announce your speaking-assignments on the internet...

Posting on the internet (Twitter, FB, blogs, forums even) generates links for the event-organizer,

Posting on the internet generates interest in your presentations...

But most of all, it allows me to "publish" my travel plans.

This particular post also serves to earn me a free (and hopefully safe) parking space somewhere... hehehe.

Plan for my October business trip is:
 - [tentative] POM: Paris Oracle Meetup
 - POUG.org: Polish Oracle User Group conference
 - SIOUG.si: Slovenian Oracle User Group
 - HROUG.hr : Croatian Oracle User Group

On a map, it looks like this..


Any one interested to come to my ppts ?

The next ride.. 

This spring I am lucky to speak at :

OUGF.fi (18+19May)

SrOUG.rs (25-26May)

BgOUG.org (3-4June)

I hope to learn a lot again: I always get a lot of good info out of those conferences.

But another reason to do this is of course: to ride the motorcycle...

(why doesnt google maps provide a motorcycle icon.. they know enough about me to server up adverts...)
