After a long hiatus, I'm back blogging. I was gone for a number of reasons, but now I have returned and you can expect that I will keep blogging on a regular basis.
A lot has changed in my life since my last blog. I've moved to Utah and now work for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love my work, saving souls is much more fun than helping someone meet their quarterly financial goals. I still am much involved with Oracle as I am a Principal Engineer and Team Manager of a great DBA team. We have a number of Oracle databases, and it's simply an amazing experience.
I've also bought a second airplane. I bought an M20A Mooney. For those of you who fly you will know that this is a bit faster than my Cessna and holds 4 people instead of two. I'll post pictures of my plane when I can (it's getting some engine work done on it at the moment).
I have opened the Blog back up to comments. I would ask that *everyone* be kind here. No personal attacks will be tolerated on anyone's part, this is not the place for that. Personal attacks just is not who I am (unless there is some clear moral issue), and I'll be no part of it, nor a part of any type of war between posters. I'm not opposed to a difference of opinion, but let's stick to facts and civility and we will all be just fine.
[Edit] One note, I've only opened the Blog to registered users. I am very much opposed to anonymous comments (I think they are gutless). So, you can leave a comment here but you will have to be a registered user and absolutely responsible for what you say. This seems fair to me.
Glad to be back!
