Developer to DBA? Why not?

So I’m new to this blogging lark. Decided it was long past time I start one and as I’m moving into the work of the DBA, I was planning to chart the trials and tribulations that go along with it.

I’ve about 14 years experience with Oracle, ranging from Oracle E-Business Suite functional/technical to large scale Data Warehouse implementations. I’m sure I’ll bore the pants off most people but perhaps someone out there will pick up something useful from my inane ramblings.

Some caveats of course… I’ve picked up a lot of scripts and tidbits over the years and most of them have probably been pilfered from some other site. If I happen to post something that really belongs to someone else, let me know and I will give credit where credit is due. Similarly, I don’t mind anyone using or sharing any content I post. But a bit of kudos would be nice if you did.
