I setup all our Oracle databases.. (Many, many of them). Only port 1521 is open in iptables. (actually, for some, I have secondary listeners).. The Junipers also ONLY allow access on port 1521, (and a secondary, if specified)
I have never had issues connecting to the database.

I guess you're supposed to stencil the paste in first and the put it in a heat oven as if you had done the pick and placing by hand.

it's a pick and placing machine after all so I don't know why you would expect it to do the things the machines left and right to it on a proper "factory" setup do... 1000 sounds more reasonable for the cost though. it's just a xy gantry and vacuum hose anyways, but even that 300 is not enough..

It's not a unique security code - it's a TRACKING NUMBER. This whole part of the process is designed specifically to work around an issue where the computer records might be incorrect or the computer system is in error and an actual human has to issue an authorization code.

The actual fault in the system is that the Apple Employees let Sharron make the call and GIVE them the number. Instead THEY should've called Chase directly and gotten the code.

it's not really beta stuff though.

what they do is serve a portion of the visitors version A.

then they serve a portion of the visitors version B. then they see in which one resulted in more sales/longer engagement.

neither one is technically beta, but more like an experiment about what works to get you to do the wanted outcome.

there's plenty of tracking/logging companies providing easy facilities this and if you work in startups you'll see it pushed on your face, even if the a and b versions don't have enough difference and the sample sizes are too small to make any conclusions on. but it gives people to do something when they don't know how they should further the sales/engagement and it's on the "book" of marketing.

Give Postgres a try, it's pretty easy to get started. And if anyone tells you MySQL is faster, ignore them until they prove it using your application and realistic transaction volumes.

While I agree with you about Oracle, you are dead wrong on MySQL. MySQL(well, increasingly MariaDB) is extensively used at some of the highest trafficked sites on the internet(Google and Facebook to name a few). It is more than capable of handling large transaction volumes.

Journal: Mars, Ho! Chapter Thirty Six

Journal by mcgrew

I got woke up early again, about five thirty this time. Fire in passengers quarters number forty seven. God damned drills, but I had to get up and inspect forty seven anyway. I put on a robe and trudged down there.
Yep, just a stupid drill. I noticed that Tammy was in the commons with the German woman as I walked past on my way back home. It was still early enough that I could still get another hour's sleep or so.

You, sir, are an abusive moron who is obviously not intelligent enough to realize that the Mars rovers are spinoffs from Apollo. Were it not for Apollo there would be no Hubble, no Martian robots, no ISS, none of the space exploration done today. Obviously unlike you, I remember Sputnik. We can thank the Russians for Apollo.

Now crawl back to 4chan where flamebait like yours is welcome. Where in the hell are the moderators?
