5.0 out of 5 stars Work in real world big data? Predictive Analytics by Brendan Tierney is the next book you should buy?, September 9, 2014
Brendan brings some real "life" to a topic that is sometimes not very thrilling. The book covers the topic in 2 ways - 1) as an academic intro to the field that all types of data folk can understand and 2) in a practical way inside Data Miner and Oracle-specific ways, like PL/SQL.

For me, the chapters on Anomaly Detection and Clustering were particularly helpful. Coming into to this from somewhat of a basic way, these 2 chapters really helped me to add to my knowledge and build on what I knew before.

I recommend this to all 3 "big data" folk - 1) beginners, 2) professionals, and 3) academics Buy it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Apache OpenOffice 4.0.1 is good, not great, April 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For those of us who refuse to pay $100s for the MS Office suite, this is a good substitute.

But, there are so many 'where is the ...' moments, that it does get tedious after a while, but that is what you give up when you pay $0.00 for something. I do not have time, but there are at least 100 things I would change. But maybe they have to make it different so it does not violate copyright laws.

In any case, for the most part, it is a good product.

If was looking to get my 3 amps off the flood. I have 2 70w 12" amps and a big Fender DSP 212. I am using this for my 1-12 amps. It works very well. I recommend them to do the job for the $$. I am not sure I would use them for a $1,200 Sunn V4 4x12 cabinet

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are an Oracle DBA you need "Oracle Database 12c Backup and Recovery Survival Guide", February 15, 2014
Oracle Database 12c Backup and Recovery Survival Guide
PACKT Publisher

This book should be part of every DBA's library. It covers the topics you would expect to be covered, but it does so in a conversational, yet professional, style. Especially as 12c becomes the 'next version to upgrade to' in 2014.

After covering basic but important topics like archive/no-archive, restore vs recovery, effects of NOLOGGING, it covers RMAN vs Data Pump, cold vs hot backups, and provides scripts to help all this be clear.

After covering RMAN in-depth, FRA, and V$ views, it cover real scenarios and shows how it all fits together in the real world.
