From the FBCon 10 session videos another one is uploaded: ODS related optimizations in Firebird 3
Presentation By Vlad Khorsun. Session contents: Major change. ODS12 contains a few important features to make some IO-hungry operations such as sweep and natural scan more efficient. I’ll show in detail what was changed and how these changes will affect performance.
Sparky from Firebird Conference 2008 in Italy, Bergamo. Made by Helen Borrie. Originally auctioned by SMS-Timing for 750 EUR. They are now offering it for re-auction and all the money will go back to Firebird Foundation.
Sparky is intact, undamaged and of course unharmed. It was well fed all the time.
