Twitter to the rescue again.

I was at the OAUG 20th Anniversary Party where I consumed my usual 2 beers (albeit larger than normal beers), when I noticed this tweet by Brian "Bex" Huff.

With the help of a couple of very nice conference attendees, I was able to locate the establishment. They warned me that the restaurant might not allow me in as I was in my travel attire (flip flops), but they did. Pretty casual everywhere around here.

Anyway, this was my very first Oracle ACE gathering. I got to meet, among others, Iggy Fernandez, Sunil Ranka and Bex. I also met Vicki who is the Oracle representative who runs the program. She actually went to high school near me in Denver.

Although I may or may not have had too much to drink, I had a good time. Floyd Teter has introduced me to just about everyone in the world and I'm struggling to remember everyone's name. If my phone or camera would work, I could probably take a picture and quickly tag it with their name. I need a system.

Anyway, I had the steak which was delicious.

Looking at that picture though...the presentation doesn't look too appealing...I can't think of a couple of disgusting things that it looks like. But I was plyed with beer and didn't care much. Like I said, it was delicious.

I also got to meet Arup Nanda, who's New Features guides/tutorials I've used a million times to learn something new. Not really sure I belong with that crowd...but I'll take full advantage of the opportunity. :)
