CTP Ratio

Last chapter, comment to page (CTP) ratio is 100 to 50, 100 comments, 50 pages.  This’ll be a piece of cake ;)

Tom,

I remembering getting hold of your book Expert One to One on the night before the oracle exam. And what happened was, that I ended up reading the book - forgetting about the exam - it was much better than the best of any books(fiction/tech) that I have ever read :) Very well written.

Till date, it remains my favourite book.Even though i'm a plain java developer - :) .

I am looking forward to having your new book on my shelf.

I think CPT is useless. Absolute values are better in this case. E.g. I have DB_FILE_MULTIBLOCK_READ_COUNT=1 and a hint
/*+ NO_PARALLEL(all_pages)*/ so I don`t know from the CPT if I`m aible to read in one session.
BTW, what is the DB_BLOCK_SIZE of your COMMENT tablespace?

Indeed. Its the
Editor - Comment from Reviewer
and the even more dreaded
Editor - More comments from reviewer
that get you in this scenario.

oh and contention for the author latch

"Contention for the author latch."

That is one of the funniest tech things I've heard in a while. Maybe Tom should change the "sorry" message on his site to include something about "... large contention for the tom latch ..." or something.

These comments are humerous.

I kept expecting some one to to give the query on how to figure out Tom's context switches considering everything he has going on.

(to continue on geek humour) judging from the strange lack of activity on asktom today, I'm afraid that we have reached the scalability limit for a monobrain instance. Time to upgrade or reduce the workload ...

judging from the strange lack of activity on asktom today,

well, I was active there until about 8:45am this morning (east coast time), then it was a trip downtown for an onsite gathering at a customer.

After getting home, I had to do the copy edits for chapter 14 and proof chapters 10 and 11 -- nothing looks cooler than your work in pdf format as it will look printed :)

All that is left is copy edit on chapter 15, and proofing of 12, 13, 14 and 15. We will make the deadline to get the book out for Oracle Open World in September.

If you thought it was inactive today, wait till friday and saturday :) I leave thursday night for a couple of days off (but next week it is back on the road, well, for the next 3 weeks actually)

Hey Tom:

Do you post your schedule of upcoming appearances anywhere? I know you have the very near future on AskTom, but anything more encompassing?

Thanks.

asktom is the only place, I need to update that as there is a lot more beyond August.
