About 15 years ago I fainted. It was the only time in my life that I fainted.

Storage was a major cause for not good enough service due to under staffing. According to Pini's presentation the complexity is driven by three factors: ... (more)

Is Oracle the Java Killer?

Is Oracle the Java killer? Probably not. Java is too strong to be killed. I posted the following answer to the question: Will Oracle's lawsuit Against Google Put a Chill on Java Adoption? When Oracle acquired Sun, I thought it was a wrong decision. It seems that Oracle's managers reached a similar conclusion and are trying to minimize the amount of money they lose.
