I’ve forgotten, but it was close by. I found it on, which is how I got to the ybca link (which I now see you have to click on Look Deeper, then The Gardens…stupid javascript programming, here is the link I should have said: ). I think the Intel appreciation nightclub night last year overlooked the gardens. I’m sure there will be clear directions to the Welcome Reception, and it doesn’t conflict with anything else (but of course, I don’t know the layout of the reception and am just assuming the big green thing in the middle will be a good place to meet “Literally jutting out of the East Garden is Deep Gradient/Suspect Terrain, a 20 foot-tall, deep green, ship-like sculpture constructed of painted steel and glass, which sits at a steep angle.” But with my luck, there will be a band or food table there or something.). Then maybe we can figure out something oracle-l specific for another time, and a protocol for communicating it to interested people at the conference. I missed the oracle-l meet last year, so I was looking forward to it this year, and hoping someone from last year or an oracle-l regular or oracle employee with a credit card :-) might take charge.

I have only been there once - last year.  Is that the place across the street from the main lobby of Moscone West? (where registration tables are?)  I will plan on being there.  I am attending the weekend DataCenter Management seminar.

Since no one seems to be taking the lead on this, why don't we all meet at 7:00PM Sunday in the Welcome Reception Sunday night at Yerba Buena Gardens, next to the Deep Gradient/Suspect Terrain (see )?

If anyone is stopping by the Veritas booth there ...  would you mind asking them exactly why the mssql$bkexec service (embedded service within Backup Exec 9.1) requires 1.74 G of virtual memory?

Are they attempting to generate sales for their performance tuning tools by killing server resources?

Are they attempting to give dbas more ammo for uninstalling win32 OSes and installing Linux?

Didn't Gaja V. work there for awhile? Maybe this is Gaja's fault :)
