Lisa Dobson contacted me a few days ago to ask if I would speak at the upcoming Northern Server Technology Day, on April 24th, this year its going to be in Leeds, last year I spoke at the same event in Manchester. Not sure what my subject will be yet, I will post here when I have it confirmed, it will be Oracle security related of course.
Finally I have not posted for a week nearly here because I have had blog trouble. I also spend some of my spare time working on the GreyMatter weblog software that i use for this weblog and my other weblogs. We released a new version, 1.7.2, of Greymatter and I almost immediatly found that there was a crash when trying to rebuild the blog. I have spent most of the last weeks evenings restoring back to 1.7.1 and testing to find the issue. This prevented me from posting here until it was fixed. , its fixed now so back to posting and also to writing the RSS/ Atom feed code for Greymatter.
