Officially, I'm a PM, running the UK's largest business database (according to the marketing bumpf). Yes, that does mean I work in business information; feel free to pity me. I'm actually a data(base)?((manag|develop)er|analyst) and an occasional DBA and Python programmer. I'm also a whizz at 4DOS, which I don't get enough opportunity to play around with.

I can normally be found hanging out in Oracle, SQL, and PL/SQL or on meta and avoiding Python as there are a lot amazing answerers there.

comment Will blocking all connections outside of the US, aside from port 80 cause a high server load?
Why, if you know, is it an explicit deny all when you're implicitly denying everyone by explicitly allowing only a few IPs in through the firewall?

comment Why doesn't Kosovo have its own ccTLD yet?
Yes @Jonathon; all of them. There was a war fought over Abkhazia and South Ossetia a few years ago.

comment 2 RAC node clusters with different RAID layouts?
Yes, of course. That's exactly what I say in my answer. Two two node clusters implies 4 servers. Each pair of servers using the same disks. You therefore have two sets of disks, each set of disks has one database. However, one cluster, that is 2 nodes / 2 servers accesses one set of disks.
