Of Gag-Orders, Excitement and New Products…

In the transcript of yesterday’s earnings call, Larry Ellison said:

We are not going to sit on our laurels; we have a major database innovation that we will announce in September of this year. It is going to be a very big and important announcement for us so we are not standing still in database.

I know, and that is why I can’t blog about any of the work I’m doing at Oracle…at least until September.

    I heard a rumor that Oracle 11gR2 contains XBox, PS3 and WII emulation, but only as an option on Enterprise Edition. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Who said anything about R2?

    But knowing what area of technology you work in, it’s not too difficult to work out what it is!

    I’d be happy if the major innovation was being able to run a 16G SGA on x86_64.

    Kevin: I’m a little telepathetic! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oracle announce a new licencing scheme, no longer will you pay by the CPU, a group of large men will simply turn your company upsidedown and shake it until all the money falls out…

    I wouldn’t flame you.

    Kevin: The comment was not aimed at you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And if one is truly desperate for an answer, oracle.com might have (or have had) a hint that can be correlated with your interests. Right Kevin? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thanks for your input on my issue. The numactl output shows about 24G free when nothing else is running.

    Thanks for the update, Jeff. I wish I could help even more. But, hey, you don’t even link to my blog ๐Ÿ™‚ Just kidding. I commented on the thread over on your blog.

    If I still had my 32GB DL585 this thread would have been *very* short.
