Changing database backend

Hello,

today we have all database migration to Oracle 10g underway. The code  
has been in development and testing for quite a long time already,  
and we are getting lots of nifty features immediately available  
afterwards. Stay tuned!

Though our database consultants prepared real-time migration plan, if  
you notice any problems, do tell.

BR,
Domas

I've noticed that the full-text database dumps for the past few days
suddenly started validating their checksums. They also appear to be
several terabytes too small. Does this qualify as a problem?

What happened to the Sharepoint migration? Surely an industry standard
platform is more desirable.

Re: Changing database backend

Hoi,
It is great to see that the SUN-Oracle partnership leads to tentative
results on the ground. This whole "open source" thing has always been a
sham. With SUN having bought MySQL, there is finally a way for this attempt
at record keeping to go the way of the dodo.
Thanks,

pardon me, but: which joke?

BTW: The wikis run as smooth as they normally do, I didn't really 
noticed the change.

Pah, it was silly and predictable.  I like enwiki's jokes better
(especially because they're all true).

Well aside from the joke itself, the reader's state affects the outcome! I
was away for a couple of days, and when I came back and started reading
wikitech-l emails to see what's new to the Wikiworld, guess what I saw in
the last (newest) email I opened!

Signature: Me, the fool!

Make sure you use a real and professional OS such as HPUX.
