Stuttgart after the apocalypse

What kind of crazy times we are currently experiencing can be realized by walking through the streets of the city and in the otherwise popular places (at least at night or during bad weather).

I find it quite interesting to get some new impressions of the city in this way. Even if Stuttgart is not the center of the world, I have never seen it so empty before.

We can only hope that many of the small bars and shops will still be there after the crisis...

Oracle installation hiccups

A few weeks ago I had to install an Oracle 11gR2 database on my local development machine. Unfortunately, the installer always crashed before starting the installation, causing an EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION in the 64-Bit Server VM (1.5.0_17-b04 mixed mode) on Windows 7.

After a few hours of digging around it turned out that I had to remove my "Downloads.lnk"-link from the Windows desktop to get the installer to work. This is just crazy!

I included the stacktrace in the full article, just in case this might be useful for somebody.
