Check Constraints
Tue, 21 Oct 2014 06:51:01 +0000
Oracle Database 12c introduces a SEARCH_CONDITION_VC column to the CDB_, DBA_, ALL_, and USER_CONSTRAINTS views. The SEARCH_CONDITION_VC column is a VARCHAR2 data type equivalent to the search condition in the LONG data type SEARCH_CONDITION column. Unfortunately, Oracle Database 11g and earlier versions requires you to convert the LONG data type to a VARCHAR2 for the […]

iPhoto movie export
Wed, 15 Oct 2014 01:15:03 +0000
What happens when iPhoto doesn’t export movies? One of two things, you re-install iPhoto and risk losing the movies and photos; or you drop down to the Terminal level and move the files manually before re-installing iPhoto. Option one is easy, you open iPhoto, choose File from menu, and Export… from the File menu list. […]

Add Color to VIM?
Sat, 13 Sep 2014 08:06:40 +0000
In Fedora 20, documents have no color coding when you edit them with vi or vim. That’s because Fedora installs vim-minimal by default. You can check what’s running with the following command at a shell prompt in the terminal: rpm -qa | grep vim It should print the following to console: vim-minimal-7.4.179-1.fc20.x86_64 You can download […]

MySQL Workbench on Fedora
Sat, 13 Sep 2014 06:00:27 +0000
The early release of Fedora 20 disallowed installation of MySQL Workbench but the current version allows it. Almost like Tom Cruise’s Edge of Tomorrow without the drama. All you need to do is follow my earlier instructions for installing MySQL on Fedora 20. I’d check your kernel to know whether it’s supported. You can check […]
