Everyone else – Calm Down, Calm Down
Democracy has won, but life will still go on. Exports will now go up.
Imports may struggle if in dollars – So, if you are buying Oracle product, lets hope they keep the prices at their current levels, or preferably drop them.
In the meantime, travelling to Oracle Open World just got a lot more expensive. Maybe they could have it here this year instead, you can get loads of pounds to the dollar 🙂
For those at Kscope16, have a great time, and hopefully I’ll be there next year.

Kris Rice writes, “The database has had Query Change Notification for a while but to use it required a custom program. Such as Tim outlines on his blog.
Scott Wesley writes his blog, inspired by this tweet:
Heli asks, “I would like to have my attributes in alphabetical order. Do I need to do it manually or is there a way to do it automatically?”
Cary Millsap says, “good design is also a very practical matter for you personally, too. If you want your audience to understand your work, then make your information easier for them to consume—whether you’re writing email, proposals, reports, infographics, slides, or software. It’s part of the pathway to being more persuasive.”
Cameron Lackpour goes through the #Kscope16 sessions that he wishes to attend.
Pete writes, “Apart from the obligatory “raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens” I must also add analytic functions to my list, and one function in particular, FIRST_VALUE.”
Brendan Tierney blogs, “This is the second blog post of my series on examining the clusters that are predicted for by an Oracle Data Mining model for your data. In my previous blog post I showed you how to use CLUSTER_ID and CLUSTER_PROBABILITY functions. These are the core of what you will be used when working with clusters and automating the process. In this blog post I will look at what details are used by the clustering model to make the prediction.”
