Hello and welcome to my little WordPress site.  I use this site to post articles and scripts that I have found and use in my day to activities as an Oracle DBA.

I have worked in the Oracle Space for over 20 years (ugh … old) … and have found that many issues are similar during my years of consulting.  As you read the articles I write you will become familiar with my knowledge of SQL tuning, Database Installation (RAC, Data Guard, Oracle OEM), Redhat Server Installation, Network / Storage Configuration, etc.

I enjoy the solving of problems and the reward of the solution.  I follow a methodology of scientific method where I focus on the facts, conduct experiments, modify the control variables, and develop proof for my theories.  I feel with todays complex computer systems a knowledge of complex systems is key to finding the simple answers.

As for my hobbies, I would have to say in my spare time I study cellular biology (long live the biohacker …), jog (no longer a runner), and I have to admit I am a bit of a sci-fi junkie.

Well enough about me … again welcome to my site and please click on the articles tab and have fun … leave a comments … many ideas make for better solutions.

If we all did the things we are really capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves …
