Oracle Training, MkII

So once again I find myself sitting in an Oracle Training course. The instructor is the same as the last one I was in; we spent lunch discussing what's been going on in the last month since we saw each other. The class is somewhat different; now it has 22 students, up from the six last time. There is much doubling-up of computers. I am now operating in a Red Hat environment, installing Oracle. Oracle is a very unforgiving application. When I accidentally tried to create a database as root, the configurator errored, crashed, had to be gunned, a dozen files manually deleted, another dozen processes killed, and finally, the whole system rebooted (because somewhere it hadn't released the name of the database so it could be recreated). Suffice it to say, I have not thus far been impressed. But the class is young, and very populous, and even through the colossal malfunctions, I am learning.

If computer systems never went wrong, there would be little need for application-specific training like that.

You could talk to Jay. He got it up and running on Red Hat once... it only took him an hour.

I got it up an running, it was just a pain in the ass. Turns out that if you installed the application as a non-root user, you can't create databases as root. Who knew?

My directions to Weathervane

Weathervane is a two room cottage with a bath. The kitchen is very small, but has everything you need. I stayed there for a couple months.

Cool. I sent an agent there to get location and imagery intel, and it looks good. I'll be transferring there Saturday.

BTW, are you the one trying to get through to my cell? I'm in class at the moment and can't check my messages.

Nope, not me. But I think someone from the office may be.
