You've also been to Scott Gosset's classes in NYC in the year 2001? He had a whole series of those classes. It was a very rare event indeed, given that he
lives in Peoria, Il. I was very, very impressed with him and his knowledge. He warmly recommended Steve Adams book, which has really surprised me because
I know from the private communication that Steve has never worked for oracle and
has never been granted access to the oracle source code. The two classes that I missed were OPS classes given by Scott Heisey (a friend
of mine was able to go and he claims that Scott Heisey is a genuine cornucopia
of the OPS information) and the class given by one and only Cary Millsap.

rumor hath it (as I've never actually had an object hit that high a number) that when you exceed 4K extents it's time to resize. This came from one of the instructors in Oracle University, one who is well-known to actually have more than a clue. He said this at the Data Internals class, before 9i was released.
