MySQL User Conference

Long time no speak! Hey non-avid readers!

I’ve been keeping my head down lately working away in our support group, and haven’t had much time to get any tips down on my blog or even any thoughts in general.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been polishing up my presentation – MySQL for Oracle DBAs, which is on the last day – next Thursday, April 27th.

If you’re reading this – and around at our user conference next week – seek me out and say “Hi!”.

I’ll work on a number of blog posts after the conference, which will give some of the information available in my presentation as well.

Look forward to saying “Hi!” to as many of you as possible!

The joy of spam

It’s a sad state of affairs when you come back to your blog after a long period of not having the time to update it – and you find 128 comments – of which 128 are spam.

Not only do we have to deal with the deluge of spam on a daily basis via our email (although, our spam protection is pretty shit hot), through our doors, and over the TV – we now have to deal with it via blogs as well.

I know this has been going on a long time, and it’s nothing new to a lot of people – but I’m going to bitch about it anyway. It enrages me.

Of course, one might call my own rant spam. Sucks to be you. ;)
