One last thing about OpenWorld

It was neat to see it mentioned in a non-technical blog I'm fond of...  Looks like they have someone on the ground in San Francisco monitoring the conference - very cool.

yeah, thanks - but nothing I can do about it right now, unfortunately. Appears we might have had the internal disk go bad on it and most of the people that could look at it are at OpenWorld right now. Hopefully someone will be able to look at it this morning.

You're welcome. I guess for the rest of the day I'll find out what I "know" as opposed to what I can "look up" :)

Interestingly enough the blog mentions that Larry Ellison had nothing to say about going green:

"Oh, and Larry Ellison? Sadly, nothing about his keynote led us to believe that Oracle is doing anything to address their environmental impact, and that speaks more loudly than anything we could say about it here."

... which in a way is refreshing to hear considering that Oracle is promoting TreeHugger on its own OpenWorld website:

Well, it's a bit more difficult to have a software company "go green"... but Oracle VM is a step toward putting money where his mouth is; and it seemed like 80% of the hardware vendors at the conference were touting their eco-friendliness.
