First entry.

OK... You would think that with all the Oracle performance researching, teaching (I did say teaching), and the endless hours writing papers, books, tools, and products, I'd be sick and tired of all of this. But the fact is, I'm looking at this blog as a kind of notebook to document some of my more interesting experiments for others to enjoy. That's the plan anyway. Please let me know what you think.

Thanks for reading!
