Black Sabbath (118110) writes "I need to tap the Slashdot hivemind. I'm faced with a distrusting spouse and want to show her my Google history. However my history goes back to 2006 — there are literally tens of thousands of entries. I've tried searching for analysis tools using the following query: +"google history" +analysis -"history of google" +statistics — to no avail. Do any slashdotters know of a tool/script that can parse the Google History output and provide some simple stats e.g. distinct sites x no. of visits — that sort of thing. I know that this is futile on one level — no amount of "evidence" (especially the kind with a "delete" function) can cure distrust. She's a non-IT, non-geek and really just doesn't understand why I spend "so much" time (an hour a day at home if I'm lucky) on the computer. Help me Slashdot, you're my only hope."

Black Sabbath (118110) writes "I'm doing some Oracle database work and would like to install it on my Intel-based Mac at home. However Oracle only provide a considerably out-of-date, PPC only version for OS X. I'm considering installing a different OS with Oracle database on it in a BootCamp partition and using Parallels from within OS X. I don't have another box at home that I can spare and the draconian firewall means using work's dev server is out of reach. My question is this, since I want to optimize my "other" OS just to run Oracle, what is the best OS from this list to use?
Is there an OS that runs "better" under virtualization than other OS's? I have decent experience with Linux, Solaris and Windows so ease of installation/administration is not an issue (since it will be done once).
I know others are looking for something similar. Help me Slashdot hive-mind, you're my only hope!"
