A few days ago I arrived in Cairo again.
I will deliver a series of 11g Administration Courses for Oracle again.
One day after I arrived the there was a a big fire which burned down the house of the maglis ash-shura, consultative councel completely.
I was lucky enough to have my new camera with me to take some exciting shots.
It looked to me as if there were multiple fires burning at the same time.

Today I have reveived a parcel from IOUG containing five copies of the current SELECT magazine.
Plus a sweater with the SELECT Journal Contributer logo:
Additionally I was granted a one year free membership for Independent Oracle User Group (IOUG) for my article on DETECTING AND REPAIRING CORRUPT BLOCKS IN ORACLE DATABASE 11g WITH THE DATA RECOVERY ADVISER which is included in the curernt issue Volume 15 Number 3/2008.
Thanks IOUG and SELECT, this was a nice surprise.
