Oracle Scratchpad

Filed under: Site History — Jonathan Lewis @ 5:31 pm BST Nov 28,2011

I missed my fifth blogging anniversary by a month – my first post was dated 24th Oct 2006 on the topic of the parameter optimizer_index_cost_adj.

Since then I’ve posted about 670 articles (and deleted a few temporary ones) and drafted another 110; I’ve acquired 750 followers;  and the blog has inspired a little  over 6,000 comments. It’s amazing how time passes and the numbers accumulate.

To celebrate the event I’ve created a new category (see top right) of “Site History” so that I could label that first post and the various posts I’ve made about viewing figures and popular posts.


  1. Jonathan, thanks for the time, effort and commitment on your blog. We all appreciate and learn from you.

  2. Congratulations, Jonathan, and thank you very much for your blog! I learnt a lot from it. And surely I remember the day I started reading the blog and how I found it – via Tom Kyte’s reference of course.
    What amazes me the most is five years ago I did not understand most of the things written here. Now it’s much easier to me :) Thank you.
