We resolved this by turning back on complex view merging, and targeting the views suffering from this bug one by one. We added the /*+ no_merge */ hint to the view definition. Now most queries ran fast again, and the queries on the views suffering from the bug didn't fail with ora-00600.

Quite a change from Atlanta. They tell me the week before I got here it was rather nice, but the snow and cold arrived just in time for me. Humm there seems to be a pattern going on here... This a shot from the classroom facility. Very flat here, you can see for a very long distance. As a hint they have a very large mall here, at one time the largest in the world I'm told.

I'm haveing a great time in _____. Weather is nice and the view from my hotel is great compared to what it was on the west coast a little while ago. Here is a picture of the nice view from the window. Can you guess where I am? (Karen, Stacy and Monty, you can't guess!!)

I've been out here in Irvine CA teaching this week with the wild fires raging around the area. I haven't been closer then 3-4 miles from the fires so not a big threat to me from the fire it self. However the smoke and ash from these fires is everywhere. This is a shot as I left my hotel yesterday and that is not morning clouds, that is smoke you see between the buildings. Fortunately I'm inside for the vast majority of the day and the air conditioning systems seem to filter out most of the smoke. I can still smell smoke inside, but not like out side. My eyes still sting sometimes when I'm out side.

I suppose this happens to folks now and then, we forget to turn off the gas grill after cooking up some burgers for the family. Just be sure your grill isn't close to the vinyl like we see here. Fortunately for this person (who will remain nameless) the job to fix the siding cost about $30 at the local home depot and about 3 hours of time.

While here in Amsterdam I took a side trip this last week end to Normandy where the liberation of Europe started on June 6th 1944. I visited Pointe-Du-Hoc where the US Rangers climbed 100 foot cliffs to neutralizer an observation point which could have brought down devastating artillery fire on the landing beaches of Omaha and Utah. I also visited the Omaha beach where the US 1st and 28th divisions landed and suffered the worst casualties of the day. And I saw the US cemetery behind Omaha beach. I've read about the landings and battles across Europe for years, so this was a great event for me.

This is not the first time this happened to me. So I'm suspecting a conspiracy. Or is the cleaning staff punishing me for not leaving a tip yesterday?

Google provided a nice April Fool's prank this year. I even thought the press release was real for about 5 seconds...then I looked at the installation page. The guys at Google must have the 2nd best job on the planet (2nd only to mine, of course!) if part of their job is to come up with stuff like this!

Did anybody notice the main Google search page today? The problem actually had to be pointed out to me as my eye didn't catch it initially, but obviously I'm not the only one who didn't see the problem.
So...have you Googed anything today?
