Oracle and the world
Yesterday I have had two terrible installations, using Oracle as the database server.

One thing I should remember:

When the connection fails, just add a .world extension to the TNSname in both the TnsNames.Ora and the connection string. Specially if all the others names in the TNSNames file also have this extension.

The rijksregisternummer again
This is a rijksregisternummer (Belgium) that I use for test persons:
99999999964
It will pass the normal test I have published previously.

Or you can use the example numbers from the kruispuntbank:
63011223457
00012556777
These contain real date's, so they could belong to a real person.
