My Oracle Support – Day 1

For better or worse Oracle finally retired old Metalink in favor of flashy “My Oracle Support”. Time will tell how well will Emperor’s New Clothes serve us. Today, I got stuck twice during the log on attempt, usually close at the end:

Click on Firefox reload page button did the trick. I guess this is partly due to techies around the World testing the new “Metalink”, I expect that things will settle in the next couple of weeks. One particular corner that I was skeptic in the past was Oracle Community. Mostly because I found “old” Metalink Forum engine that was underneath at the time and which didn’t allow us to use fixed font. This is — in not so humble opinion — a must have feature for posting technical content on the web, otherwise code samples are hard to read/follow.
So, this time around I clicked Community from the Menu and clicked on “Enter my Oracle Support Community” …

…then I opened some thread and eagerly clicked on reply…and yes, finally it’s here, a toolbar that allows us to pick fixed sized font:

How little it takes to make an old grumpy DBA a happy camper :-)
