WordPress 3.9 Released

Tim Hall - Wed, 2014-04-16 15:20

Hot on the heels of WordPress 3.8.3 comes WordPress 3.9! The downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

I’ve just manually initiated the auto-update on five blogs and all went through OK.

Cheers

WordPress 3.8.3 – Auto Update

Tim Hall - Tue, 2014-04-15 01:53

WordPress 3.8.3 came out yesterday. It’s a small maintenance release, with the downloads and changelog in the usual places. For many people, this update will happen automatically and they’ll just receive and email to say it has been applied.

I’m still not sure what to make of the auto-update feature of WordPress. Part of me likes it and part of me is a bit irritated by it. For the lazy folks out there, I think it is a really good idea, but for those who are on their blog admin screens regularly it might seem like a source of confusion. I currently self-host 5 WordPress blogs and the auto-update feature seems a little erratic. One blog always auto-updates as soon as the new a new release comes out. A couple sometimes do. I don’t think this blog has ever auto-updated…

I’d be interested to hear if other self-hosting WordPress bloggers have had a similar experience…

Cheers

Tim…

Deep Dive: Oracle WebCenter Tips and Traps!

Bex Huff - Tue, 2014-04-08 17:26

I'm currently at IOUG Collaborate 2014 in Las Vegas, and I recently finished my 2-hour deep dive into WebCenter. I collected a bunch of tips & tricks in 5 different areas: metadata, contribution, consumption, security, and integrations:


Deep Dive: Oracle WebCenter Content Tips and Traps! from Brian Huff

As usual, a lot of good presentations this year, but the Collaborate Mobile App makes it a bit tough to find them...

OUGN : Summary

Tim Hall - Sun, 2014-04-06 02:33

With the exception of a 5+ hour layover in Amsterdam, the trip home was pretty straight forward. I flew to Amsterdam with Lonneke DikmansRonald Luttikhuizen and Roel Hartman. During my rather excessive layover, I played catchup with all the internet stuff I missed during the trip… :)

I must say OUGN 2014 was a pretty cool event all round! The speaker lineup was incredible. The location (on a boat) was fun. I’ve not done that for a while. In addition to the presentations, I got a lot of time to talk to people about technology, which is what I love doing, so that made me happy…

Big thanks to the organisers of the event for inviting me and paying the bill for the boat and hotel room! Thanks to all the speakers and attendees that managed to put up with me for a couple of days. On a boat, there is nowhere to run! Thanks also to OTN and the Oracle ACE Program. They didn’t fund this trip for me, but I’m still happy to be flying the flag on their behalf. :)

Cheers

Tim…

OUGN : Day 2

Tim Hall - Sat, 2014-04-05 09:22

Day 2 started really early. Having got to bed about 02:00, I was up at 05:30 and thinking about my 08:30 session. The previous evening’s conversation with Brynn was playing on my mind a little (in a good way), thinking how that conversation should/would affect my session. The session itself seemed to go well. I enjoyed it anyway. :)

From there it was more conversations with people, including a chat with Martin Bach, Martin Nash and one of the attendees (sorry, I forgot your name) about some Exadata issues he was having. I freely admit to knowing nothing about Exadata, but I do know about most of the technology stack that makes up Exadata (like ASM, RAC etc.). Since a number of the issues people have are not really “Exadata” issues, so much as “RAC” issues or “ASM” issues, it’s surprising how much you can get involved in these discussions, provided you don’t try to pretend to be something you are not!

After that I attempted to catch up on some sleep, which didn’t really work out, so then it was off to lunch.

After lunch it was time for an open database panel session. This is the first time they’ve done this sort of thing at this event, so I’m not sure what people expected, including us panalists. :) I think this sort of thing needs to run for a few conferences to let people get a feel for it, before you make a decision about whether it is going to work or not going forward. You have to give it an opportunity to mature… :)

After that it was off to Martin Bach‘s session on Oracle 12c, features that didn’t make the top 10. There were some things I already knew about and some things that passed me by. Food for thought!

Next up was Martin Nash speaking about what an Oracle DBA should know about Linux administration. I was pretty confident I was going to be so ahead of the game here, but he mentioned a number of things I’ve not played with. I’ll probably end up downloading his slides and working through some stuff.

Then it was my WebLogic session. Marcus Eisele did a session called WebLogic 101 in the morning and after a quick discussion I decided that we were effectively giving the same talk. I’m always a little nervous about doing WebLogic talks, but this made me even more nervous. As it turned out, with the exception of one person, I got a different crowd to him, so it was fine.

After my last session of the conference, I inevitably did some more chatting and then went off to see “Oracle Cloud Oddessy“. From there it was dinner, chatting to Mike Dietricht in the bar, then off to bed to sleep through the overnight ride back to OSLO.

Cheers

Tim…

PS. I think I got married to Debra Lilley by the ship’s captain…

OUGN : Day 1

Tim Hall - Sat, 2014-04-05 09:03

The journey to Norway was pretty straight forward, but during the second flight, from Amsterdam to OSLO, my nose and eyes started to stream. I didn’t feel ill, but I was starting to worry I might be getting ill right before a conference. I landed in Norway, got the train to the centre of OSLO and walked to my hotel. I was meant to go out to dinner, but I figured bed might be a better option…

The next day we met up and headed off to the boat to begin the conference. After boarding, we went to the keynotes. Since these were in Norwegian, a few of use ended up at the back of the room chatting. :) As soon as I got access to my room I headed on up to check it out. I’ve been on one of these ferry/cruise ships before and I think they are kind of cute.

After some food it was off to the first sesson of the day. I went to Connor McDonald speaking about Analytics. I’ve been to a number of different talks on analytic functions over the years, including my own. It’s kind-of cool to see how different people approach the same subject and what they focus on compared to you.

Next up it was my session. Compressing a 60 minute session, that I always overrun on, into 45 minutes was a challenge and I had to miss some stuff out, but it’s all good. I got some good feedback after the session, which is also nice for the ego. :)

From there is was on to Lasse Jenssen‘s session on version control in the database. I really enjoyed this session as it raised lots of important discussion points! After all these years, there is still not a single product that really does everything, but there are a number of products like Red Gate SQL Source Control, that are coming closer to the mark.

After that I got locked in conversation with a number people and missed the next session. I spent a long time talking to Cary Millsap about a whole bunch of stuff unrelated to technology. Then it was off to the evening drinks and dinner, where I sat with Cary and Connor. Once again, lots of chat about none technical stuff. Pretty cool!

At about midnight we decided to head off to bed and I bumped into Brynn Llewellyn, who asked if he could have a quick word with me. Two hours later we eventually knocked that conversation on the head and I actually went to bed. :)

Cheers

Tim…

300 : Rise of an Empire

Tim Hall - Sun, 2014-03-30 10:32

I went to see 300 : Rise of an Empire yesterday.

My feelings on this were a bit of a mixed bag. I was not the biggest fan of the original 300 movie at the cinema, but I have subsequently warmed to it. This film adds a bit more story about the lead up to the first film and fills in more details about what happened after, so it is kind-of like a combined prequel-sequel. Visually it was quite similar to 300, but it felt a little more low budget to me, like a longer, high budget episode of the Spartacus TV series…

The action sequences tended to follow a similar pattern of,

  • Fast shaky camera with no focus.
  • Slow motion slash.
  • Ultra-slow motion blood splash.
  • Repeat.

I did like the back story of how Xerxes became a God King. During that sequence I got really into the film, but after that the film started to meander and drag on a bit. By the end I was starting to nod off, so too was my pregnant friend, but her husband thought it was brilliant.

As is often the case, if you like the first you will probably like this. Just don’t hold out any hope that it will push the envelope, because it won’t.

Cheers

Tim…

PS. While Spartan’s had Scottish accents (see first film), it appears Athenian’s  had Australian accents! You learn something new every day… :)

Invasion of the Octopi!

iAdvise - Tue, 2014-03-18 21:42
As a bit of a sci-fi geek (a dedicated Browncoat, amongst other things) I was shocked to discover that Cthulhu's had completely passed me by. For those uninitiated into this global geek cult a Cthulhu is a squid like creature created in the fantasy works of H.P.Lovecraft in 1926. But in modern sci-fi has become a jokey euphemism for horror and evil on a great scale. A recent Neil Gaiman short story piqued my curiosity even more.Cthulhu created a mini trend in the world of crafts, with squid and octopus creations becoming extremely popular in amigurumi and jewellery. Which led me to discover these cephalopod inspired creations on Folksy.First up is a stunning print from I Like It I Think Its Nice. The detail in this print is quite outstanding, and wonderfully fantastical at the same time.Here's some of that famous Octopus jewellery I mentioned, this one's on a lovely gold plated chain from Laura's Jewellery.As a lover of all things laser cut (I've even dabbled a little myself) this piece really stood out for me. Mirrored purple acrylic, with a delicate engraving, and Czech glass ink drops, lovely work from Tea Stained Jewellery.Although these little Jellyfish are not cephalopods, their little tentacles were too cute to be left out. Snap one up from Orangefishy Plush.Wear your Octopus love on your sleeve! Well, your hem if you buy this snappy t-shirt from Conkerlove. Loving the button eyes.Create your own under sea imaginary adventure with these Octopus finger puppets from MuNGBEANS. Or you could just wear them whilst reading a Cthulhu novel.Its amigurumi time from Ali's Crafts, a cute little child safe critter handmade with loving care.And finally, the more deadly side of Octopi in this recycled card depicting the venomous Blue Ringed Octopus. Wonderful hand stitched detail from Ethel & Iris.A slightly odd inspiration for this article, but I hope you've enjoyed reading it, and are now aware of the Cult of Cthulhu!P.S. I hope you're having a Happy New Year too.

Have a Heart...

iAdvise - Tue, 2014-03-18 09:42
I think we were all blown away last week by the Royal Wedding - the pagenatry, the flags, THE dress, the splendour and the great outpouring of general "Britishness". But we mustn't forget that this was really just a young couple's marriage - their declaration of love for one another, and their commitment for their lives ahead.But this isn't the only "matter of the heart" that we should be paying tribute to... On this day in 1968 the first heart transplant in the UK was conducted at the National Heart Hospital in Marylebone, London. This amazing, life-saving surgery was undertaken by South African born surgeon Donald Ross, on an unnamed 45 year old man. At the time this was a wonderous new procedure, that (sadly, but necessarily) has become a very "ordinary" operation these days - but has saved, and will continue to save, many many lives each year.So this week's selection of beautiful Folksy items are all dedicated to "hearts" - symbols of love, and vital organs alike!Heart BangleHeart BoxHandcut Heart CardSmall Copper HeartHeart CushionSilver Heart EarringsHeart & Heart Felt BroochKey to my Heart KeyringCurly HeartWooden Heart

Blogging on gives me the opportunity to blog about my passions - and one of these is sewing. I just love to sew (except repairing clothes or taking up trousers) and my Mum taught me on a Singer sewing machine that belonged to her grandmother.I am also passionate about embroidery and when my children were small we used to go to the Young Embroiderers Club, organised by the Embroidery Guild in Baildon. Well there are some very talented embroiderers on Folksy and I hope you enjoy their work. (Don't forget to click and buy - support your local Foksy artist).

Body Parts - Ears!

In my opinion it is a design fault in genetics that we weren't all born with pierced ears - we would have no excuse not to wear fabulous earrings. I love earrings - I can't leave the house with bare ears and I own hundreds of pairs. I also own hundreds of odd ones too!

Beware the Ides of March

iAdvise - Sat, 2014-03-15 09:42
This week we're having a bit of a history lesson, courtesy of all you erudite people at Folksy!The Ides of March is 15th March in the Roman calendar, and was originally a festive day dedicated to the god Mars. It is also the day in 44 BC that Julius Caesar was stabbed 23 times in the Roman Senate, which gave rise to Shakespeare's famous quotation "Beware the Ides of March" in his eponymous play. Today, the Ides of March is celebrated in Rome with a toga run. Sounds like much more fun to me.So we're taking a stroll through ancient history this week, focusing on the Roman empire.

In Celebration of Pencils

iAdvise - Fri, 2014-03-14 21:42
Pencils are the best invention - ever! Look at what you can do with them - draw, scratch your head, clean your ears, jab the annoying person next to you.... I think pencils are great. The design hasn't changed much during the history of the pencil and it is ergonomically designed to be held comfortably. Fortunately the content has changed from lead to graphite so that we are not poisoning ourselves as we chew distractedly on the end. So, let's take a look at some pencil inspired Folksy items and make our mark!Large Pencil Cushion from Dinky DaisyColoured Pencils Photoprint from Dyche PhotographyPen and Pencil Set from Turning TimeBird Print Pencil Case from Leanne Woods DesignsPencil Case from Paper SpoonPersonalised Teacher Rubber Stamp from Skull and CrossbonesPen Pot from Malcolm's CreationsA5 Drawing Sketchbook from Chalk Hill Studio He Says He Can Hear The Forest Whisper from Hidden Eloise

A little birdy told me

iAdvise - Thu, 2014-03-13 21:42
One of two things always inspire me; Bunnies and Birds. I've talked about bunnies in several previous articles on another site, so now it's time for the birds! Once again Folksy makers and sellers have outdone themselves with amazing birdy related items. Here's a selection of my favorites;Below is an amazingly beautiful and detailed clutch purse from notes, in a super summery sunshine yellow.These super kawaii Birdy Amigurumi Toys from Owl on the Sill are so adorable! Love their little birdy quiffs;Jiji Kiki comes top trumps again with this vintage love birds necklace. Look at the cute heart beads detailing;I'm a big fan of papercraft, and Under the Stairs Studios creates some of the most inventive paper circuses I've ever seen. Would make a great deluxe birthday card!Molly's Mum is a shop that's been on my radar for a while now, everything is so wonderfully made with fabulous fabrics and attention to detail. Make sure you check out the owl brooches too;Who doesn't love Jemima Lumley's Jewellery? I bet these earrings look stunning on, and even better with one of the matching birdy necklaces also available;For all of us who have a button stash, these would make a welcome addition I'm sure. Handmade by Mollimoo (aka Chumley) these buttons are also available in blue;Upcycling is everywhere, even this article can't escape it! Here's the upcycled item for this selection, check out the cute ribbon tails; from Kerli;I truly admire ceramists, as my clay creations are truly horrendous! This pair of lovebird bowls from Prince Design UK would be a simply stunning wedding gift, timeless and elegant.Now I realise this is a little cheeky, but what the heck. For the first (and most likely last) time here's one of my items. Understand that this is mearly to prove the point I stated at the beginning of this article, that I gain inspiration from birds. So to the point, here is a set of my birdy badges;Aside from my shameless self promotion at the end (feel free to ignore it) I hope you like my selection of beautiful birdy items fresh from the pages of Folksy this month. Since I found so many wonderful bird based items I intend to follow this artilce up with a 'part 2' sometime in the future. But for now, don't let these unique handmade creations fly away without you. Many thanks to all those who suggested items,Aleximo, xXx

Jammy Dodgers and Creativi-tea!

iAdvise - Thu, 2014-03-13 09:42
Well, this is quite an honour to be here and to be writing my first blog for . Normally I would celebrate in some way, perhaps with a large cup of tea and a jammy dodger biscuit. For those of you who already know me, I do have rather a reputation for liking the occasional cup of tea ...... OK, I admit it, LOTS of tea!!! The odd jammy dodger biscuit makes an appearance as well, although not for long and certainly not as often as I would like them to!So, in recognition of being asked to blog for '' and very much in honour of my love for tea and jammy dodgers, I have put together a treasury of beautiful and inspiring pieces of work from the very talented and creative people of Folksy. To me, these pieces show how a truly creative person can draw inspiration from everyday, possibly mundane, items to produce something inspiring, uplifting and desired by many. I hope you will enjoy my lighthearted journey through the pages of Folksy and share in the appreciation of these unique and inspired pieces of work.I love the quirkiness of this print and the fact that it depicts the typically British tradition of tea drinking. The use of cockney rhyming slang can't help but make you smile. 7 x 5" mounted print 'Rosy Lee' by Artwork by AngieWhat can I say? It really does look good enough to eat!Jammy Dodger Pendant by CutiePiesI chose this because the fluid lines of the teaspoon lend themselves perfectly to the shape of a ring. I love the concept of recycling the odd, or unwanted, teaspoons to breathe new life into them. It reminds me of a mobile I once bought for my kitchen, that was made entirely from recycled cutlery.Sterling Silver Teaspoon Ring by Sophie Marie Smith DesignThese would certainly make bath time more fun!Biscuit Soap Set - Oreo, Jammy Dodger, Custart Cream & Bourbon - yummy fun food soap - vegan and suitable for sensitive skinI love these! Lino printing reminds me of early craft experiences at school and these cards inspire me to maybe try it again one day.Teapot Linoprint Cards, Set of 4Although not strictly tea, or jammy dodger related, this gorgeous little chap appeared in my search and he does have a somewhat striking resemblance to a certain biscuit!Tubby Love Cat (Dark Brown) by Quernus CraftsAnother quirky one. I love the individuality of this brooch.Square Wooden Teapot Brooch by Kettle of FishI like the bold simplicity of the design on this one and the sentiment obviously!"I love tea"! Mug, Red by Quite Contrary CraftsThis is just so striking and a great combination of different styles that work together so well. A really eyecatching teapot, but also an amazing piece of art. You would definately want to get this one out if Hyacinth Bucket came round for tea and SO much nicer than her hand painted periwinkle set!Tin Can Teapot by Rebecca Sims Ceramics
