Is “One Context Per Fact Table” a True Statement?

Categories: Fan / Chasm Trap, Universe Contexts, Universe Design Dave Rathbun @ 10:20 pm

The other day I was talking to someone about contexts in a universe and they offered the typical response. You probably know the one… it says that you should set up one context per fact table.

Launched a New Photography Blog

Categories: General Dave Rathbun @ 12:36 am

I have had a photography site online for many years. It was one of the first sites I built, and lately is the last site to get any loving attention. :) I fixed a little bit of that a few weeks ago when I launched my new photography blog, and plugged it into that site.

Recovered From a WordPress Hack…

It seems that my installation of WordPress on this blog was hacked. Yes, I was out of date. Yes, I have fixed it. Yes, I have checked my server and everything seems fine. Yes, I’m pissed that people don’t seem to have anything better to do. :roll:

In any case, one of the symptoms was that all of my “pages” were changed to posts and then hidden for some reason. So if you were missing the conference download links, they’re back now.

I’m talking about BOB Version III. :mrgreen:
