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 […]


E-Business Customers

It seems the Oracle E-Business Suite stymies newbies. Naturally, it’s complex and requires some research before you try to develop any customization. Having recently fielded a question about how to manage, search, create and update customers for a third party order entry system, I’m always surprised by how little people know about Oracle’s Trading Community […]

Unfortunately, the epel (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) package he recommended doesn’t run on Fedora 20. You can read my tale of […]


Excel EOMONTH Function
Sun, 27 Jul 2014 05:20:30 +0000
I fielded a question from blog reader on a three year old post about the EOMONTH (End Of Month) function in Excel. The reader want to write a mega-function (a term for putting two or more functions together to solve a problem, according to Mr. Excel). The function would return the first day of any […]


PostgreSQL New Database
Thu, 24 Jul 2014 21:22:58 +0000
How time flies, last March I explained how to install and configure PostgreSQL on Windows. It was my intent to start posting more content on PostgreSQL but I was distracted by another writing commitment on Oracle Database 12c PL/SQL Advanced Programming Techniques, which should be available in November. It tempted me away from PostgreSQL because […]
