Site Hosting Update : The Proxy Wars

This site hosting thing really is the gift that keeps giving. :)

I wrote a little over a week ago about an outstanding issue with the website, which seemed to be related to people’s company proxy servers, rather than my web server. While I was staying at the Sofitel, I started to get the issue where the HTTP address for my website was giving me the following error.

Forbidden
You don’t have permission to access / on this server.

Oracle OpenWorld 2014 : Wednesday

Another early start on Wednesday. I headed down to meet the Dbvisit gang for breakfast. FYI: I’m not paid to keep mentioning them and I don’t work for them. They are just a great group of people who I really like, so when I get a chance to meet up with them I do. :)

Oracle OpenWorld 2014 : Tuesday

Tuesday started early with 5 hours in the hotel lobby. The plan was to catch up on my blogging using the free wifi. I hadn’t blogged for a couple of days, which prompted an email from my mom to see if I was OK. :)

It took about 5 hours to complete two blog posts, because every 30 seconds someone new walked by and I was “forced” to speak to them. :)

That done, I headed down to Moscone South to check out the Dbvisit stand. I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had never tried a Twinkie, so Chris Lawless went to work correcting that state of affairs by bringing a box of Twinkies to their stand. You can see me trying my first Twinkie here!

Shrink Tablespace

In a comment on my previous post on shrinking tablespaces Jason Bucata and Karsten Spang both reported problems with small objects that didn’t move to the start of the tablespace. This behaviour is inevitable with dictionary managed tablespaces (regardless of the size of the object), but I don’t think it’s likely to happen with locally managed tablespaces if they’ve been defined with uniform extent sizes. Jason’s comment made me realise, though, that I’d overlooked a feature of system allocated tablespaces that made it much harder to move objects towards the start of file. I’ve created a little demo to illustrate the point.
