Well, it’s been AGES since I last blogged about anything, either here or on my other personal blog – apologies, I’ve just been really busy over the past few months. I’m also working on a government project where I have no internet access, so my chances to catch up on anything out there have been limited, too.
Anyway, just a quick post to say that I’ve not forgotten about my blog, and to give you a couple of links to places that I have managed to read recently:
Tom Kyte’s blog @ http://tkyte.blogspot.com
Oracle WTF @ http://oracle-wtf.blogspot.com
I’ve also been reading some Ask Tom threads on “Top-N queries” which I was asked about in my interview for the current role. Tom has some great points about the futility of doing a COUNT(*) to indicate how many records a query would return for allowing users to page through the results, and what a waste of resources it is.
Anyhoo – must dash 🙂
