A great new Oracle database resource

My colleague Mark Lishman has recently started blogging about all things Oracle over on Lishblog. He really knows his stuff and has a habit of explaining it so that mere database mortals such as myself can understand it.

He's only just started but already has an excellent post on how to use external tables in Oracle. This is really handy when you have a massive CSV file and want to query it but can't be bothered to write in input script in Ruby or something because you will be scrapping it soon.

He's a great Oracle DBA and his blog will no doubt be well worth subscribing to!
