Wrapping SQL*Plus
Thu, 21 Aug 2014 00:58:55 +0000
One annoying thing from installing Oracle Database 11g on Fedora, was that the up arrows for command history didn’t work. I decided to fix that today after seeing Lutz Hartmann’s article on rlwrap. 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 […]

Visual Studio Freedom
Sat, 05 Jul 2014 07:48:21 +0000
Some of my students want to learn to write C++ on a Windows OS. At some point, you simply surrender to the fact that many people prefer the Windows OS as a starting point. Traditionally, I’d recommend the Microsoft Visual Studio as their learning vehicle because it’s free to our students because of our relationship […]


Fedora VMWare Upgrade
Thu, 03 Jul 2014 08:00:23 +0000
When a new update of VMWare comes out, and it is time to upgrade VMWare Tools. Here’s an update on the instructions for upgrading VMWare Tools 6.0.1 through 6.0.4: Navigate to the VMWare Menu, choose Virtual Machine and in the drop down menu Install VMWare Tools.
