I’m making use of Ubiquiti AP’s and therefore use the Unify software to manage them. I have it installed within an “ordinary” vm.
The software normally uses a self-signed certificate. This is not a big issue as it is my local network.
However Chrome starts warning more and more and Safari doesn’t seem to like the self-signed certificate at all after the latest updates. So it became time to install a “proper” certificate.
This little article explains how.

Sometimes when you’re writing code you can encounter the situation only one session / thread may execute it (the code) at a time. This is commonly referred as a “Critial Section“. How do you solve such a problem within the Oracle Database?

When running code you sometimes have the need to debug the progress of the statements. One way is to use a table and write your debug output into it by means of an autonomous transaction. But sometimes it can be easier to just hand the debug info to a different session. Say hi to Dbms_Pipe…

Sometimes you need to resize a filesystem because it grows out of it’s available space. With virtual machines this is quite easy, just resize the disk. But…. how do you make Linux know the disk has been resized?

As I read an article about Oracle providing version 23c “for free to developers” (https://blogs.oracle.com/database/post/oracle-database-23c-free) I wondered if it was usable for a quick deploy of Apex. As ORDS has been updated as well it turns out that needed some tweaking…

For my audio system I’m making use of Logitech Squeezeboxes, as I’ve converted most of my CD’s (yes I’m old ;)) to MP3 format. In this way I’m able to play/stream the same music throughout my house. Spotify is also integrated into this set-up so I’m able to play that as well.

But I also have a record player (old remember ;)) with vinyl records. It would be nice to play them through the same system….
It’s almost becoming a series about UTM, my quest of finding replacements for tooling I used on my Intel based MacBook Pro. This time a little article about how I’m using UTM as a replacement for my usage of Vagrant.

When buying a new laptop I settled for a MacBook Pro with a M2 processor. As I was used to an Intel based MacBook Pro with virtual machines and Docker containers I keep searching for replacements for the functionality I was used to. Earlier I’ve written a blog post about running an Oracle Database on the M2 MacBook pro, this time I’d like to talk about using x86 based containers.

As I am an Oracle consultant I sometimes want to try things on a local instance. My normal way of working is to fire up a virtual machine or docker instance with the Oracle database and try the things I want to try.

With the newer versions of macOS the Wifi of your MacBook is being enabled automatically when the laptop is being restarted. This might not be something you want.
