MySQL miscellany

For a guy who doesn’t go to the MySQL conference and routinely gets flamed by the MySQL community for being insufficiently adoring of their beloved product, I sure have been putting up a lot of MySQL-related posts recently. Here’s another, zooming through a few different topics.

    Seems as if Oracle now has a pincer capability to eliminate all competitors in the db world. From above with Oracle, and from below with MySQL. Now squeeze.

    We missed you at the conference. Do you go to Oracle Open World? Maybe the next MySQL conference will be held there.

    One man’s flame is another man’s critique. You haven’t been flamed by the MySQL community in a long time. I don’t think they pay attention to you anymore. I still respond here, but I don’t think my responses have been flames.

    I think that is too bad as you and the community can learn a lot from each other.

    I haven’t been to Oracle Open World in years. Generally I go to vendor trade shows only if they pick up expenses. 😉

    You’re right that my comments about flames and such like don’t pertain to the immediate past.
