First, an apology. I am sorry for my long absence from blogging.
Second, an explanation. I have been distracted by family matters. Specifically, my wife has been fighting a battle with breast cancer. For any of you who have been touched by this disease, you know some of what I have been dealing with. Happily, she seems to have now turned the corner, and I am now focusing again on technical stuff, including this blog.
I will be posting here soon concerning such items as virtualization (for which I will have something new), Exadata, the new ACFS feature in 11g R2, and so forth. Stay tuned.
For those of you who would like to see me in person, I am at the Collaborate 2010 show as we speak. Come by the EMC booth and say hi. We are located right next to VMware. Also, I will be speaking in the Vendor Showcase tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. Please come and I hope to see you there.
