Stuck in the US of A

As far as I know, nobody who was at the MySQL User Conference and lives in Europe has made it back home yet!

Please leave a comment on this blog as soon as you get home. I am interested to know...

My flight was yesterday, so I have the worst prospects. I am booked on a flight for next week Wednesday (10 days delay)! No joke! :(

The other Oracle ACE Director

While the choice of Ronald Bradford and Sheeri Cabral were natural for Oracle ACE Director my own nomination was perhaps a bit of a surprise. Well, it was to me anyway.

Those of you at the conference may have noticed that I had no (super-cool) ACE Director jacket when I was called up on the stage...

Well that was because the jacket was too big, and I had already returned it to Lenz for it to be exchanged.

Unfortunately I can't return the shoes because they are too big for me as well...

Slides of the PBXT Presentation

Here are the slides to my talk yesterday: A Practical Guide to the PBXT Storage Engine.

For anyone who missed my talk, I think it is worth going through the slides, because the are fairly self explanatory.

If there are any questions, please post them as a comment to the blog. I will be glad to answer :)

PBXT at the MySQL User Conference 2010

At this year's User Conference I have some interesting results to present. But more than anything else, my talk will explain how you can really get the most out of the engine. The design of PBXT makes it flexible, but this provides a lot of options. What tools are available to help you make the right decisions? I will explain.

Every design has trade-offs. How does this work out in practice for PBXT? And how can you take advantage of the strengths of the storage engine? I will explain in:
