Mixing personal and business online, and why I do it.
Because they're underage, I love my kids, and I'm not the world's worst parent. Wait, wait - it's also because THEY DON'T DRINK BEER.But that's not what this post is really about, although I'll come back to explain this traffic-grabbing headline in a bit.This week Kellyn PotVin-Gorman and I gave a presentation at an Oracle conference about how to take advantage of Social Media in our industry.We assumed that everyone knew that Social Media was im...

I start with an outline. An outline of pictures. 
Writing for me is a chance to let ideas and words escape from my head. It's just a bonus if what I write actually helps someone else. When I go to put words to paper to word processor, I start with an outline. My 5th grade english teacher taught me how to write a paper.

Another great video, I can see why you have so many subscribers :) 

You can skip the step of creating the table first, if you do an import from the main table node, it will create the table based on the Excel file, and then do the import.

Also, look for some enhancements in this feature in version 4.1 that will make this wizard much easier to work with!

Congrats on your well-deserved award! So is 'overseas' just code for 'anyone not from the UK?' 
Although I’ve attended the UKOUG conferences since 2008, this year’s edition was somewhat special to me. Based on the attendee reviews of last year’s UKOUG, I was elected as “Best Overseas Speaker”. And for me that’s quite an...

Nerd, husband, father, IT professional
Introduction

I am a Product Manager for Oracle on their database development tools team.

My blogs and on-line content come from me, and only me. I am not paid to blog – I’m a consultant, and any blogging I do is to promote myself, my causes, and things that make me lol. — Directly lifted with permission from Brent Ozar.

My IT background is primarily based around Oracle’s RDBMS technology, but I also have experience with  IBM DB2 and Microsoft SQL Server.

My other passions include my family, trying new beers, riding my bike, classical literature, and West Virginia University football and basketball.

Find Me on the Internets

Note: I usually only accept Facebook requests from actual friends and LinkedIn requests from people I’ve actually worked with. If you want to get to know me, Twitter is a good place to start.
