Helpful Blogs! Yes, I Read the Documentation, But It Doesn’t Always Sink In.

I was just chatting with my friend Greg Rahn about an External Table related problem that I was hitting when he pointed me to a related post on Tim Hall’s ORACLE-BASE website. One again (as many times before) Tim’s blog proved extremely informative. It is by far one of my favorite blogs. I don’t know if it is a right-brain/left-brain thing, but Tim’s examples always help me smooth over any problems I’m having with documentation complexities. Come on, admit it, all of us have scratched our heads at least once while staring at a convoluted railroad diagram in the documentation and wished there was an example to bring it to life. Well, like I said, Tim always does that!

Come to think of it I almost forgot to mention that fellow Oaktable Network member Jared Still has been blogging at  Jared Still’s Ramblings for a couple of years. It is a good site and I recommend it. I’ll be adding it to my blogroll.

    I have to re read several things in the manuals for them to sink in. Even with that I forget many things. Sometimes working on it clears things up.

    Reading once may not help lots of times. Internet is a good thing to happen for us technologists.
