The Rumors of My Demise

…have been greatly exaggerated. However, I certainly have not been blogging as frequently as I’d like. The fact is that I am heads down doing performance work on a product that I cannot speak about until Oracle OpenWorld. Larry Ellison is happy to launch the product at the show and I shan’t steal thunder!

I did notice that my seemingly dead blog was propped by Jeff Hardison who was the gentleman that recommended WordPress as a blogging platform to me. He also gave me sage advice like, “blog everyday, even if it is just a short piece”, which I seem to have ignored completely. I can’t bring myself to blog about nothing. About all I could blog about these days is not having time to blog.

    Hi Kevin,

    I’m the one who wrote about the PolyServe case study. Thanks for the link back!

    Blogging “everyday” can be optional …thanks to RSS and other feeds (see WordPress FAQ: I didn’t see a feed option on your blog – just here in the comments section. Oh yeah, you can also blog via your phone (text or voice) with tools like which can also save you time.

    Best regards,

    I was recommending your site to somebody in the OTN forums who wanted to know about Oracle and SANs. I notice that many of the posts in your FS, CFS, NFS, ASM Topics index are marked as censored and unreachable. Just as a matter of interest why have you withdrawn these articles? Is it related to your changed status as an Oracle employee?

    Cheers, APC

    Yes. There are things written in my self-censored posts that are technically correct by technocratically incorrect. I’m too busy to deal with any headaches that may arise from co-workers, or anyone else for that matter, that may not be able to discern the obvious difference.
