How to submit an article...
I get lots of email (that I don't ask for...). Just yesterday for example I got a 2172kb (yeah, over 2mb) email from a DBA who thought I'd want to see a couple of their statspack reports to help them tune their system. I was less than impressed with that (when you travel, your internet connection is sometimes fast and sometimes not fast - regardless - sending someone you've never communicated with before a 2.1mb email.... nothing compressed either!)
Anyway, the one I got this morning was a lot "smaller" (2kb) and was from someone wanting to get some of their technical papers published. They didn't know where or how to send them for consideration.
I didn't either truth be told, but I asked around - and as it turns out, there is a process. You can go to this Oracle Magazine page and submit your ideas there. The entire process, expectations, and so on are spelled out. Just thought I would mention it - in case you have some papers lying about you'd like to be considered for publication.
Darn, should have read that last paragraph on that page myself before I started writing for them :)
