My name is Ignatius. Everyone calls me Iggy. My name means “fiery” (the Latin word for fire is ignis and the Sanskrit word for fire is agni). I grew up in the same town as British rock star Freddie Mercury; that’s your clue. I now live in Northern California, in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I have worked with Oracle Database in many capacities and am always interested in exploring new opportunities; here is a resume. I’m a very big fan of the ODA concept because RAC raises the bar higher than most IT organizations can handle.
I am the editor of the NoCOUG Journal and the author of Beginning Oracle Database 11g Administration(Apress, 2009). I have a lot of opinions but am willing to change them when confronted with fresh facts. As the American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson said in 1841 in his essay on self-reliance: “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. … speak what you think to-day in words as hard as cannon-balls, and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day.”
