I couldn’t in good conscience leave my
#PaintHammer2019 count at 99 for the year, so I speed painted Da Red Gobbo to round me out at 100. Not my best, but I’m going to enter him in a contest tomorrow anyway.
Just slept in until after 9am. For the first time in I-can’t-remember-how-long, so I guess I was tired?
Never has one horrible goose brought so much joy to so many
Rise of Skywalker mini review: obvious and predictable fan service is obvious and predictable, yet still somehow effective at making me feel like an awed 12 year-old. It made me excited, emotional, want to laugh, and roll my eyes in equal measure.
To be honest, it’s possibly Stockholm Syndrome on my part, from the number of times I’ve been made to watch it… 😅
Is it even Christmas if you don’t watch A Muppet Christmas Carol at least once?
I found a new FLGS (Friendly Local Game Store) on our walk today, and I was tickled by this sign in the window.
We decided to do something different with our Christmas Day, and went for a long walk instead of hanging around the house all day. Just stopped for a coffee before heading home again to cook dinner.
Finished for the year; found the source of our time zone problems (vendor system config, not our app 👍); walking home to go put my feet up.
It’s like time zones were designed to completely mess with the Machine Spirits… and my hopes of a quiet last working day before some holidays!
Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) allows developers to create REST interfaces to Oracle Database, Oracle Database 12c JSON Document Store, and Oracle NoSQL Database as quickly and easily as possible. When working with Oracle Database, developers can use the AutoREST feature for tables or write custom modules using SQL and PL/SQL routines for more complex operations. This post will explain what happens with dates as they move between ORDS and Oracle Database.
Why did humans make dates and times so difficult for computers to understand? And in turn make the computer’s problems with date/times so difficult to debug and troubleshoot?
It’s my last day in the office this year. I’m pretty sure there’s going to be just me and the manager in, so – assuming no disasters – it should be quiet enough for me to hopefully deal with a couple of sysadmin-y jobs.
