And I did not pay him!
Chris, thanks for the review, what more can I say. Oh – and yes, metalink is the place to start for non “howto questions”. What version is supported on platform X? – metalink. I’m getting an ORA-0600 – metalink. But questions that are “howto” or “best practices” – forums, metalink forums, otn forums, oracle-l, asktom – they are best suited there.
