Sample lab queries in XLDB tutorial video


#1

Hello,

I saw the XLDB tutorial video
viewtopic.php?f=18&t=566&p=995&hilit=+slides#p995
but seems the Amazon instance does not exist anymore.

Are the LAB files posted anywhere I can download?

I am looking into browsing the sample exercises in the labs and go over some of the more advanced queries there.
Anyone had the chance to download them?

Thanks

Hi,

It looks like the AMI image is there but there may be some flakiness with Amazon’s AMI search? I can see it as available and launchable. Take a look:

Thank you Alex,
The screenshot made the difference. I noticed on the screenshot that the AMI image was based on an east-coast EC2 server which apparently is not visible from west-coast servers. As soon as I logged on an east-coast EC2 server the AMI was visible and was able to check the Lab files.

Aha. You’d think that Amazon would automatically replicate the data between their servers automagically. Good to know!
