New home for Random Query Generator docs

One of the tools we use to qualify MySQL Server is the Random Query Generator (RQG for short). This is an SQL generator (and more) to test database systems such as MySQL. I plan to post more on that later.

The RQG is an open source tool written in Perl, and is available on Launchpad. Up until now the RQG documentation has been part of the MySQL Forge wiki. As you may have seen from this blog post, MySQL Forge is going away soon (August 1st). Unlike other parts of the Forge wiki, the Random Query Generator documentation has moved to github, and will continue to be maintained by the RQG community:

The RQG docs is a great starting point for getting to know the Random Query Generator and its capabilities.

Welcome to my loft

Happy New Year, everyone!

This is my very first blog post ever, and as such it is going to be short. Hopefully I will find the time and inspiration to put something here soon that may be of interest to others.

I am a Norwegian with some geeky and some not so geeky interests. I suspect that some of the geeky stuff on this blog will relate to my current job as a QA engineer for the MySQL database at Oracle, but do not be surprised to see other things here as well. My initial hope is that I will be able to post something often enough to not make this blog appear abandoned by the same time next year.

Until next time!
