Richard Foote’s Art Work (Art Decade)

Just a quick note to say I have a new tab on the blog called “Richard Foote’s Art” where I’ll periodically upload a new piece of my art work. As the page says, they highlight both what’s in my mind (so beware) and how I like to relax in the evenings. All pieces are for […]

Modify Primary Key Using Index (Learning To Fly)

One of the things I love about working with Oracle Database technologies is that there’s just so much one can learn. I make it an active goal of mine to try to learn something new at work each and every day, no matter how big or small. One of these days, I might blog about a presentation I put together […]

Merry Christmas !! (Love Is Lost)

It’s been a pretty good year all round really. I had the most perfect holiday in Hawaii, the mighty Crystal Palace won promotion to the English Premier League, we’ve finally won back The Ashes from England and David Bowie released the most brilliant “The Next Day” album right out of the blue. Oh and the Oracle 12c Database was finally […]

Top 100 Books Of All Time (I Can’t Read)

And now for something completely different. David Bowie recently revealed a list of his top 100 books. It was a really interesting list, especially considering that being such a huge David Bowie fan for so many years, I had only actually read 2 of the books on his list (“Nineteen Eighty-Four” by George Orwell and […]

OTWUK13 (Battle For Britain)

I’ve been fortunate to attend and present at many Oracle conferences over the years but the one I would love to get to one year is the UKOUG conference. It always seems to have a great line-up of speakers and I’ve heard lots of positive feedback. Unfortunately, it’s a long long way from home, but […]

1,000,000 Blog Visits (How I Made My Millions)

Things have certainly been busy lately so I haven’t had much of a chance to get back here for a while. Busy at work, busy at home, busy at play and even busy with a new David Bowie album to enjoy !! And yes, “The Next Day” is an absolutely stunning album by the great […]

I’m Back !! Oracle Index Internals Seminar Scheduled in Europe For June.

It’s been quite a while but I’ve recently been asked to present my Indexing Seminar in Europe for Oracle University and at this stage, all the planets seem to be aligning themselves to make this a distinct possibility. Seminar details are as follows: Location: Bucharest, Romania When: 17-18 June 2013 Cost: 2000 RON (approx. 450 […]

5 Year Anniversary (5 Years)

It’s just occurred to me that I’ve just recently past the 5 year anniversary of when I started this humble little blog !! My first real post on Invisible Indexes was written back on 11 December 2007. Some 256 posts later and I’m still here, posting occasionally on Oracle Indexes with as many David Bowie […]

250 Posts !!

WordPress reported that my last post on Exadata Storage Indexes was my 250th !! Who would have thought …

Back At Oracle Corporation (The Return Of The Thin White Duke)

I’ve been very quiet on the blogging front lately, so apologies for that. One of the main reasons is that after a period of nearly 10 years, I’ve decided to take up a position back at Oracle Corporation as a “Principal Solutions Consultant” in sunny Canberra. So things have been rather hectic, finishing up in [...]
