Your feedback and comments on www.adp-gmbh.ch are welcome. If you see something that could be better, or is simply wrong, please feel free to send it to rene.nyffenegger@adp-gmbh.ch.
I try to answer each mail I receive, but please understand that I only have so much time, and I do not always have the time to answer questions. The more interesting a question is, the more likely it is answered.
Of course, mails that tell my that my work is not in vain, cheer me up. Here's a sample of such mails:

Hi, 

I just wanted to let you know that I was doing a search on C++ today
and found http://www.adp-gmbh.ch/cpp/recursive_count_words.html 

It was very helpful.  You made my friday much easier. 

Thanks.

Hi, 

http://www.adp-gmbh.ch/ora/ is one of the great sites with Oracle
study materials. Thank you so much for hosting such a nice and 
resourceful site. 

However, one thing is missing there; Search facility. If you can add 
searching capability, that would be fantastic!! 

Thanks again.

Great website on Oracle, please do not discontinue it at any time!

Hey Rene,

Your site is great!

I'm a fellow Perl/Java/C (Solaris is my fav flavour) programmer from
New Zealand and was browsing for some code on Perl Win32::OLE(word)
and found your page on it.  Someone borrowed my Win32 Perl book so I
restored to abit of early morning browsing.

I thought it was so good that I'd check out the rest of your page - I
wouldn't normally do that.  Anyways so yes I think Laszlo looks like
fun and I'll look at this a little more  :)  Along with all the other
neat tools you've linked in your blog.

Anyway thank-you again, you are a scholar and a gentleman.

Cheers,

Hi -

    I love your site and it is very useful however I did notice one item I believe needs correction.
Your statement that the log_buffer is useless beyond 1MB is semi-accurate.  The log buffer could be
set to 3MB and still be useful because the buffer is flushed in any of the following circumstances:
checkpoint occurs, every 3 seconds, 1MB of buffer is used, or 1/3 of the buffer is full.  If you set
it to 1MB it would not use the full buffer capacity.  It would flush at 1/3 full or 333KB instead
of 1MB.  Hope this helps.

  Congratulations!!

Nice website Rene. 
A minor correction: SCN is System Change Number and not System Commit
Number (http://www.adp-gmbh.ch/ora/concepts/)

I'm new in Oracle too, don't take my word for it. 
Keep up the good work.

cheers,

 Hi Rene,

Great site. Excellent. Keep up the good work.

Thanks

Your site is great. I have been looking everywhere for a simple example of what owc
can do and yours was just what I needed.

I like your site.  It has lots of interesting tidbits of information.  The DOS variable substitution will
definitely come in handy.  I have two books on DOS scripting, and neither one of them mention that 
variable substitution syntax.


Also, I thought the paper mill pictures were interesting.
If you ever want to know what paper making was like at the start of the industrial revolution, you should read 
"The Tartarus of Maids" by Herman Melville.

You've done a very good job, your site is great, not
perfect but great.

I like your site, I give it two thumbs up, it is a little bit of
everything, and I like the reference style nature of it.

I saw it off from the Joel on Software forum.

As a java programmer I was not looking forward to
trying to figure out how to do line wrap in PL/SQL to
make up for the silly 255 characters per line limit. 
Your lovely little procedure probably just saved me a
few hours of headache once I realized I needed to do
the gt and lt substitutions, which only took a minute.

Rene,

Hi I am very new to Oracle but I cam across to your site and I just wanted to let you know that
it is one of the best sites I've visited for oracle. Now I have your site bookmarked and refer to it so many times.

I just wanted to "thank you" for the efforts and providing such nice references.

Karnash 

I just wanted to send a quick note to tell you that your Oracle site
(http://www.adp-gmbh.ch/ora) is full of information that I
consistently find very useful and that I'm glad that you take the time
to maintain it.

Thanks again,
Dan

 Hi,
   I have just been looking at your site.  The following page in particular;
 
http://www.adp-gmbh.ch/ora/misc/dynamic_performance_views.html
 
I must say I am very impressed and found loads of great information contained on this page and others pages.  
For example, the x$ views page.

I am an up and coming DBA - I was a 7.3 DBA and then went down a different career path until now.
I'm on 9i and VERY rusty to say the least.
 
YOUR SITE WAS GREAT!
 
no sign ups, no B.S., just to the point help on how to do stuff (in my case, how to create my 
password file that was corrupt).
 
You don't know how thankful I am for a site like this! THANKS!!!
