A new blog for a sunny May!

Moses had the first tablet that could connect to the cloud.

And another…

The first computer dates back to Adam and Eve. It was an Apple with limited memory, just one byte. And then everything crashed.

The sun is out in the UK! Pull up a deckchair, slap on the Factor 30 and read some of the latest news and blogs in the outdoors!

Blogs of the week

1. Cat or Dog — Image Classification with Convolutional Neural Network

5. OBIEE Variables overview

6. Oracle: compare DB Time and CPU time to ASH

Kyle Hailey compares AAS from ASH verses SYSMETRICs specifically, starting by saying that “ASH CPU is consistently lower that SYSMETRIC CPU and that could be because waits burn CPU but show up as waits and not CPU in ASH. On the other hand, not sure why total AAS from SYSMETRIC  is consistently smaller than total AAS from ASH.”

7. Updated Version of Optimized WebLogic Image on Docker

Dirk Nachbar says, “Yesterday I published my solution for an optimized WebLogic Image on Docker https://dirknachbar.blogspot.com/2019/05/optimized-weblogic-image-on-docker.html). The yesterday’s version was limited to the usage of Oracle Server JRE 8u152, due to an Oracle Bug 27117282.”

8. Playing with Oracle Database Security Assessment Tool (DBSAT)

Francisco Munoz Alvarez begins his blog by saying, “The Database Security Assessment Tool (DBSAT) is an incredible free command line tool provided by Oracle Corporation as a utility to help you verify your database for common database security issues(including security policies and controls in place), as well as helping to identify possible sensible data stored with the database.”

10. Highlight ‘current’ card in APEX

Scott Wesley opens by saying, “Earlier today I posted a solution that required a bit of jQuery to execute after refresh of a report.
