I originally wrote this in 1994 as an engagement summary document for a
power company in Colorado. I don't have the exact date anymore.

My copy of Cary's paper "Oracle7 Server Space Management - An Oracle
Services 
Advanced Technologies Research Paper", which was my first encounter with the

concept of uniform extents - and a certain Cary Millsap - is dated "Revision

1.4b (95/10/31)"
I was immediately hooked and converted.
