An interesting thing happened to me on the way to the office today. I turned of at the beginning of Thames Valley Park into the land of Oracle. I usually drive straight past to the last roundabout so it was quite strange.
I was attending an event for the UK Oracle User Group (UK OUG) Special Interest Group for Oracle on Windows . This shows a level of interoperability between Microsoft and Oracle. James had a chance to speak about 64 bit windows even after his journey back from Africa Diving last week. I was attending to provide information and help answer any questions. This event was a re-run of highlights from an event run in Redmond in February. I have volunteered to show some of the resources for monitoring Windows servers at a future event. I had a really good day chatting to people about the technology.
