Today the Upgrade Blog has its Fifth Anniversary :-)

Not sure if 5 is a lucky number :-)

But in fact today the Upgrade Blog "Upgrade Your Database Now!" has its fifth anniversary.

Well, there's not an update every day - and there are spans of silence for weeks when I'm either too busy (traveling most likely, writing etc) or when I feel there's not much important to say.  

So it's time to say THANK YOU to all our visitors and readers. I can't say exactly how many people have visited the blog so far as I have put up the Flag Counter only less than 3 years ago. And it does not count people logged into the Oracle network as our IT folks have blacklisted the Flag Counter for whatever reason (opened tickets never get a response). Guessing that we've had over 500,000 hits within the past 5 years. And almost 40,000 downloads of our "Upgrade, Migrate and Consolidate to Oracle 12c" deck. That it impressive. And the new version with new layout, new content and some corrections and enhancements will follow soon. 

So thanks to all of you for stoping by, coming back, commenting, sending mails, discussing and downloading our stuff - and we'll do our best to keep you updated on Database Upgrades and Migrations in the future, and serve you well with useful tech slide decks :-)

-Mike
