The Lighter Side: RMOUG or Bust

A group of geese is called a gaggle, a group of crows is called a murder, a group of leopards is called a leap. What would you call a group of Oracle Aces?

Stand on your head or turn your monitor upside down to read the answer below. 🙂

P.S. There’ll be a loaded deck at RMOUG Training Days 2010 which takes place on February 17 and 18 this year; look below. The complete agenda is at http://www.technicalconferencesolutions.com/pls/caat/caat_abstract_reports.schedule?conference_id=62. The early registration fee—good until January 13—is only $245 if you are an RMOUG member or a member of any other Oracle user group; compare with the price of other big conferences. Denver has a great public transportation system so you don’t need to stay in an expensive downtown hotel. Flights are usually plentiful and reasonably priced because it’s a flight hub for United Airlines. In fact, several airlines have winter fare sales right now; I found a round-trip flight from San Francisco to Denver on United Airlines for only $164.

    Wow, speakers lineup looks awesome and topics covered seen very interesting too.
    At least, I hope some slides are shared for those who are 5000 miles away from Denver 😉

    Yes–unlike some other conferences–RMOUG is very good about making conference papers and presentations available to those who cannot attend.

    Here are the conference papers and presentations from the last three conferences:
