Self-publish and be damned

13 March, 2013

Way back in 2009 I thought it would be fun to write a book. The result of this ill-thought-out endeavor was Oracle User Productivity Kit 3.5, a technical reference to an obscure piece of software that myself and apparently three other people used. Although it didn’t sell particularly well (around 1,000 copies), it was a [...]

Fun With Servers – Part 1*

14 September, 2012

A couple of years ago, for the fun of it, I wrote a book on UPK 3.5. The latest version of UPK (11.1) has now been available for several months, and although my current client doesn’t have it yet, I keep getting asked for an update to my book. Also, in the spirit of being [...]

I Hate Lynne Truss

18 May, 2006

My wife is the Events Coordinator for the Parents’ Association of our childrens’ school.  This means that I’m effectively involved too, doing anything that involves touching a PC instead of the ‘phone.  This week I had to deisgn and print some tickets for their Summer Ball.  Being short on both time and patience (and unpaid) I [...]
