IBM DB2 Podcast

The DB2 Cocktail Hour is a frank and open discussion of all things DB2. DB2EXPERT.COM is a DB2 DBA and developer website created by the DB2 consultants of Yevich, Lawson, and Associates.

The following snippet is just a sampling of the podcast.

03/25/2005 – Series 1 Podcast 2 Availability
Notes by Dan….DB2 V8 includes many new feaures for availability, and so we thought we’d address those features, but also talk about how application and database design are a very big part of high availability. This podcast was recorded at Susan’s home in Springfield, Illinois. Susan was having some Trapiche Cabernet from Chile, and I had a couple of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Drop-ins include Opera Singer by Cake, and Goody Two Shoes by Adam Ant. OK, so now we’re a bit looser…maybe too loose! There are a few silent moments as I forget what I’m doing, and keep pushing the wrong buttons on the computer, so keep listening through those parts (we don’t edit).

03/03/2005 – Series 1 Podcast 1 DPSI’s
Notes by Dan….Here we go! This is our very first podcast, and as far as we know the first DB2 podcast ever. We chose the V8 topic of DPSI’s because they are probably asked about more than any other V8 feature, and misunderstood by many. This podcast was recorded high atop the Marriott Waterfront in beautiful Baltimore, Maryland. Susan was having some Robert Mondavi Merlot, and I had a couple of Amstel Lights. We also had some pretzels. Drop-ins include Rock the Nation by Montrose, and Fly by Sugar Ray. I was going to drop in Goody Two Shoes by Adam Ant, but forgot to…maybe next time! I was pretty excited and I think I drank most of my beer in the first one minute. This being our first one we may be a bit stiff, but we’ll get the hang of it! We hope you like it, and please give us some feedback and topic suggestions!
