Employees Who Stay In Companies Longer Than Two Years Get Paid 50% Less

Filed under: Uncategorized — mdinh @ 3:39 am

I came across an interesting article Employees Who Stay In Companies Longer Than Two Years Get Paid 50% Less and thought to share with you.

Let’s use the rule of 72 as an example.

Basically, the rule of 72 is a simple method of determining the number of years an investment will double by dividing 72 by the rate of return.

With a 4% annual salary increase, salary will double in 18 years (72/4).

With an average 6% annual salary increase, salary will double in 12 years (72/6).

What’s the likelihood of getting an average 6% annual increase for 12 years while remaining at the same company? Next to none!

It’s definitely possible to double salary in 12 years depending on the starting point.

For salary starting with $40k is easier to achieve versus starting salary of $100k, per se.

Priceless

Another wager lost to my daughter, this time an iPhone 5s.
Thank God she does not want the 6.

Learning the alphabets in school, A is for apple.
Earning straight A’s all the way through 8th grade.
Having dad pay for all the Apple toys – Priceless!

Learning RMAN is like learning to ride a bike

Filed under: 11g,oracle,RMAN — mdinh @ 12:13 am

For almost five years, I have used RMAN very minimally.

Luckily, learning RMAN is like learning to ride a bike. One may not be able to perform wheelie, but one does not forget.

Please allow me to share the details on how to restore database to a new server, new database name, and new location using RMAN.

Summary:

At source, database is using OMF and backup is located at /oradata/backup.
At target, database is not using OMF and backup is copied from source to /oradata/bkup.

Database was renamed from SAN to DB02.

Detail’s here
