    Lots of work waiting for you. It would be nice if it was so simple as the script 😉

    Hi Tyler.

    Very many congratulations to you both. You must be delighted.

    PS. Didn’t know Oracle did shirts in Colin’s size 🙂

  4. Congratulations!! Awesome picture!!
    Is the human race evolving? Don’t you think new-borns look more defined than they used to??

    Congrats. but you got the scope wrong. I think it’s more like:

    ALTER SYSTEM SET core_dump_dest=’/mnt/diaper/genie’ SCOPE=BOTH;
    alter system switch logfile;
    Alter system set audit_trail deferred;
    alter system quiesce;

    If only the time between diapers were a fixed interval… 🙂

    Simon: Well, my shirt is a Miami University (Oxford, OH. We were a school before Florida was a state). His was just something the hospital had. Good idea though, I should try and find an Oracle shirt in his size 😉

    Girl-next-door: That picture was taken almost 2 weeks after he was born. He was born 6 weeks early, so he had to stay in the hospital. I’m not sure if this supports or refutes your theory, as he’s either 2 weeks, or -4 weeks depending on how you want to count.

    Kris: Nice! The “system” scope is a lot more funny.

    Scott: Right now it’s a very fixed interval as he doesn’t cry when he goes in his diaper. We feed him every 3 hours, so we just change him right before we feed him. Those were the instructions of his Dr. as well as a whole crew of amazing nurses in the Special Care Nursery at Sibley, so we’re going with it for now.

    Baby looks like his dad 🙂

    truncate table sleep;
    insert into sleep (to_do) values (‘cry baby, cry’);

    With many cities in the US and Canada now attracting a host of new immigrants each year, many
    of these new arrivals need to retrain because their existing credentials are
    not recognized here. Do you sometimes wonder about switching too or from an accounting software package.
    Bad accounting alone is the very reason why many would
    be successful entrepreneurs fail.
