Topic for RAC cookbook

Hi everyone,

Perhaps, I could be the first person(please excuse me if I am wrong in my perspective) who would ask the readers about what contents/topic they would like to foresee in a RAC cookbook. Well, I am planning to co-author a new RAC book, tentatively titled 'Oracle 11gR2 cookbook' and I would like you (my readers) to help me and yourself putting forward your inputs/views about the contents that you wanna have in the book.

I knew there are a several good books exists on RAC topic in the market, however, we would like to develop a cookbook which would be very handy, full of practical expertise and very rich in contents so that DBAs could use the book as a reference in their day-to-day practical life. Please take moment to express your thoughts on this point.

Look forward receiving your positive inputs.

Once again, wishing you and your family a very happy EID in advance...



Wishing everyone a very happy and prosperous Eid Al-Adha

First and foremost, a very happy and prosperous Eid al-Adha to everyone around the world in advance. Our eid holidays  starts off from tomorrow till 11 September 2011, 9 days in total. Believe me, I was desperately looking forward for this break as I really got too busy with 8 node cluster upgrade and DR setup righter after I came back from my OOW conference and trip.

I am not gonna enjoy the days by just sitting idle at home, perhaps. I do have some plans to visit a few places here in Saudi Arabia with family members followed by a long pending blog entry about my cluster upgrade and downgrade experience, finalizing my new books Table Of Contents (TOC) and finally completing the presentation for my forthcoming webinar.

Keep smiling and have a happy health.
