But you assumed that the Steve Adams mentioned at the bottom of that article is the one you know ;))  

They should have mentioned Steve's Web site. They did not miss tusc and ioug URLs. Ummm..... wonder why not ;) ;)  

I say poor Copy Editing on part of the publishers.

Obviously, we don't know what we're talking about. I can see there's a presentation by Rich Niemich at IOUG-A where he'll address all those idiots who are saying you should ignore the Cash Hit Ratio (and who are all just after making big money on their products - I loved that one). Well, to be on the safe side he's also written a very bad article (it's even - amazingly - got the NAMES of the typical waits wrong) about waits in Oracle Magasine. The editor can be excused. But what I truly love is the writing at the bottom of the article, with very small print, stating: "Editing help: Steve Adams". Right. Steve would write that kind of stuff and get the wait names wrong. Yep. As a consulting company we here at Miracle are delighted: We expect a lot of calls from customers who cannot locate these events or find events that are not mentioned in the article. Heh-heh.

I love it. I'm just really sad I can't be at IOUG-A. Here's another idea: Why don't you all come to my 42nd birthday, which we'll celebrate on May 2nd (a Friday) here in Maaloev, Denmark? You're all welcome, and we'll find ways to let you sleep either in the Garage (our HQ) or my house. Then we'll do some cool presentations in the afternoon and celebrate in the evening.

Let me know when you planes land in Copenhagen airport and I'll pick you up.

That is the first alarm that I turn off as soon as I establish a new DB connection ... even the operators in our Computer room know to ignore that alarm.

And it is! Quest's Spotlight on Oracle (the new v3.0 has some great graphing) has alerted me nine times this week that the BCHR on my production ERP/MRP system was 0.00%.

OF COURSE, I immediately bumped off the 200+ sessions, boosted the buffer cache by 25% and bounced the instance each time I got the alarm. ;)
