        Just my tuppence worth, but it might be beneficial to get some good
background on the various LOB types, before you simply start storing data.
You will then be able to make the best choice of LOB for the job and get the
most benefit from Oracle.

        You should be able to quickly get a good feel for LOB technology
from the various Oracle concepts guides.
