Did have a quick chuckle when reading this.
"Experience the best of PostgreSQL with OCI Database with PostgreSQL"
one more level of indirection. what could possibly go wrong?
Die Kooperation der IT-Riesen #Microsoft und #Oracle ist besorgniserregend. Denn sie bedeutet noch weniger Wettbewerb auf dem IT- und speziell dem Cloudmarkt. Und das, nachdem Oracle vor kurzem seine angeblich "souveräne" Cloud für die deutsche Verwaltung vorgestellt hat.
Souverän bedeutet aber auch, dass die Anwender souverän zwischen unterschiedlichen Herstellern wählen können.

Tiens en vieux #libriste je me souviens du temps où on m'expliquait que se passer de #Microsoft c'était non souhaitable pour les utilisateurs mais aussi surtout pour les coûts avec notamment l'exemple de la ville de #Munich comme "parfait exemple" ...
Que je sache cette ville n'a jamais été en situation de ruine et rien n’empêchait l'utilisation des deux en parallèle accessoirement ....
Huch, was genau möchte mir #Oracle damit sagen?

Seems Birmingham is effectively bankrupt. Then I noticed this tidbit.
The city council, has a budget shortfall of £87m this year, and they're partially blaming its #Oracle IT system for this.
The system was expected to cost £19m. But after three years of delays, it was revealed in May it could cost up to £100m.
Why do I see this again and again in government projects?

A local government goes bankrupt from an IT implementation and I guarantee you the blame is equally shared on both sides of that project.
Largest local government body in Europe goes under amid #Oracle disaster
Problemas de software proprietário:
Há semanas gostaria de testar a famigerada nuvem da #Oracle e ela sempre valida meu cartão de crédito mas depois alega que foi incapaz de completar a criação da conta.
Depois de enfim desistir, fui olhar se o problema sou eu.

What a year 2023 has been so far!
So many license terms or terms of services changed when no one was expecting any of it:
And a bunch of others that I don't remember now.
It was my wake-up call, indeed.
"Oracle as a Service" on Azure. A native PaaS service hosted in Microsoft's cloud & fully supported by both Oracle & Microsoft.
Yeah, after 28yrs of competing with those guys, it'll take a while for this old dog to wrap his head around this announcement. 😁

Haushaltsentwurf zementiert digital-politisches Versagen
I don't expect hashicorp to do anything ill advised. But it's not them I'm worried about. It's any goliath coming along to scoop them up. Too many times this happened with excellent software companies. Moving to a far worse direction due to the licensing. ⚰️
Looking at you #Oracle. 😡 Still upset at that one for like 1000th time.
Steuergelder für Oracle! Der Bund überweist knapp 4 Milliarden an Oracle. Ohne Ausschreibung?

etlhelper is a #Python ETL library to simplify data transfer into and out of databases. It takes care of importing drivers, formatting connection strings and cursor management to reduce boilerplate code required to use relational databases.
v0.14.3 is out now. It contains minor fixes and a deprecation warning because v1.0.0 is coming soon with breaking changes.

Guess I should really have some kind of an #introduction post here - so here we go. I'll just copy from my other introduction post...
One could say that I like to dabble in technology, gaming, books, current events, etc etc. You'll probably most likely find me posting from a wide variety of stuff here, and possibly even jumping in on some other threads from other users that I find of interest to me as well.
I'm a scifi geek, comic nerd (sorta), boardgames (though I don't get to play them often) and just tech culture in general.
I'll use this as the beginning of my interest tags:
The licensing on ZFS is a tragedy for Linux and open source
Everyone could be running self-repairing data-at-rest encrypted devices across all Linux distros right now, but because of pure legal nonsense Linux can't merge ZFS and distro maintainers won't actually test or support it because of that
If Oracle actually cared about open source they would allow ZFS to be merged into Linux so that distros can actually maintain it. For Oracle open source is a publicity stunt

🕺 New Changelog & Friends!
Red Hat’s decision to lock down RHEL sources behind a subscription paywall was met with much ire and opened opportunity for Oracle to get a smack in and SUSE to announce a fork with $10 million behind it 🥊
Few RHEL community members have been as publicly irate as @geerlingguy, so we invited him on the show to discuss 💬
Your move #Oracle. Let's see the last OpenSolaris release under a BSD and GPL-compatible copyright/license. Thx.
Reading this with mild passing interest...
"Oracle takes on Red Hat in Linux code fight"
Not going to lie, I wouldn't be unhappy to see an #opensource arms race of sorts in the commercial #Linux space. So far, #SUSE is the only one that has obviously done anything actionable, to my knowledge, around the rhetoric. If #Oracle wants to step up and fix CDDL/GPL compatibility or opensource the PUEL parts of #VirtualBox, now would be a great time to step up to the plate and take a swing.
Dear RedHat/IBM, Oracle has some shade for you.
"Interesting. IBM doesn’t want to continue publicly releasing RHEL source code because it has to pay its engineers? That seems odd, given that Red Hat as a successful independent open source company chose to publicly release RHEL source and pay its engineers for many years before IBM acquired Red Hat in 2019 for $34 billion."
#RedHat - does all development in open
- bought several companies, open sourced their code
#Oracle - always been a proprietary software shop
- buys an open source operating system, closes it
- buys java, uses it to blackmail its own customers
- gains pleasure from seeing ZFS users suffer
- writes a blog post
Internet - pats Oracle on the back because they made a very clever joke of calling Red Hat IBM
I think I'm going to kick a trash can on my way home today.
(edit, disclosure: red hat paid my bills and let me work on a project that connects many of you to the internets no matter what distro you run until i forgot how to program completely)
@jwildeboer I was there when Sun acquisition went through and it upset me just like it upset all of #FOSS community knowing what #Oracle is capable of doing. Now, imagine THAT bad company is finding #RedHat move a bad one, and offering you keep previous #RHEL model by offloading the dev to them, something like RH become rebuilders (or freeloaders, hobbyists, hackers..etc.)! Don't you see how positions were swapped over night?
Oracle attacks IBM over Red Hat's restricting the sources to RHEL..
It sounds like they mainly want people to just use their upstream directly, instead of taking their curated release and having to strip out all the branding/etc. I think all that's added to #redhat is specific version pinning/testing and branding -- if that's the case, #oracle is just piling on misinformation.
The smallest violin award of the day goes to #Oracle! Congratulations! :) https://www.oracle.com/news/announcement/blog/keep-linux-open-and-free-2023-07-10/
#Oracle is dunking on #IBM / #RHAT about open source?? Wow...

Hate on #Oracle #VirtualBox all you want, but when it comes to installing old school versions of Windows server, it really can't be beat. In VMWare, if I want to install Windows Server 2003, I'd either need sighted assistance or *a lot* of help from OCR, because not only is the Windows audio service disabled, but VMWare doesn't include the drivers needed for audio to work anyway, even if you enabled the service. You'd need to install not only VMWare Tools, but you'd have to find the audio driver that VMWare uses as well. With VirtualBox, however, Shift + F10, sc config AudioSrv start= auto, net start AudioSrv, and boom! Audio works! Now you can enable Narrator and breeze through the installation.
