The Years of FAT

My first visit to Oracle HQ was during 'the years of FAT' (i.e. when working on File and Tape Management: Experimental Needs - FATMEN).

(On the way back from an IEEE Mass Storage Symposium in Monterey).

The idea was to discuss with "Smokey" on some possible future directions...

I suggested a distributed lock manager.

Na, doesn't scale.

I was somewhat amused when a while later they came out with... a DLM...

Ah well... Can't win 'em all...
