The Day after April Fools

You knew that yesterday it was April Fools day – right…?

So just to make sure, statements made by me yesterday, except of course those on the OTN Forum, were utter nonsense. What made it also clear to me is that on the internet, making a joke, without offending someone, is an art form in itself.

Let me assure you that everything is okay with Polly and the Boys as far as I know and they still enjoy each others company despite the occasional moaning. Have a look more often on Doug’s personal site to see how they all are doing (and “say hi!”), if you have the time (and of course Doug and Polly to write something). As you can see currently, Doug delivered as promised (would you have expected otherwise?), “H” is siting there in a very, very comfy luxurious seat (and just like me, likes the Nintendo Wii).


I had also a friendly email conversation with Mr. David Peake (cool apex site btw) regarding the comments on John’s post “APEX ported to MySQL and SQLServer”. We just commented on John’s post to make absolutely clear that people wouldn’t get confused between the relationship of my ridiculous remarks and the 1th of April. Also I was far to busy to mirror other peoples domains / sites, which should not be done anyway, if you are not the (intellectual / ) rightful owner of the website.

Hopefully no serious harm done.

It is time to get back to business: Stress testing the XDB$RESOURCE structure (one of the pillars of the XMLDB repository). Have a nice day, out there.
