Thinking that if I I actually have something to say I’ll say it here first: Maybe.

What am I up to?

I started new courses this week: Project Management/Career Development and Oracle.  Should be interesting.

I’m trying to decide whether to work on the oracle labs at home via VPN + VNC or install Oracle on my own laptop (ubuntu -64bit).  I had no trouble in a previous semester getting the MySQL and JavaEE stack up and running locally, which saved me a lot of hassle while developing.  Oracle and form builder shouldn’t be any worse should they?  Doesn’t hurt to experiment.

UPDATE – Oracle 10g and Sql developer work just fine after some initial config changes. I’m also done the first lab.

UPDATE II – The Oracle Development Suite proved to be too much of a pain to install in ubuntu. No deb package like there was for the database. I’ve set up a CentOS vm to see if I can get it all up and running there. I should probably just use the VPN connection to finish the homework. Or I can continue to mess with this…

Deciding what to do next.

Damnit… So I’ve been suckered?

I really should write something more.

Unfortunately, most of my posts remain in draft for far too long. One of these days soon, I’ll get things straight.

There is so much to share.

For now it remains stuck in my head.  This seems hardly fair.  What should I do? I have everything but the right words at the right time.

Another day to dwell in distractions:

  • WordPress needs updating.  Go figure.  Expect down time.  Maybe a lighter / more professional look to the theme as well.  I plan on placing my resume when I’m ready.
  • I’ve setup tomcat on a FreeBSD server in an attempt to demo some of my more polished J2EE webapps built during a recent course taken @ NAIT.   Unfortunately, I’ve lost myself trying to connect tomcat to an exisiting apache setup.  I had not realized the need for a special connector such as mod_jk .    Hopefully it will work soon.
