RE: Meta link is down

2 features seem to be missing, at least for me, under the new interface - bookmarks and cut-paste. Under the "old" metalink, we had a link at the top named "Bookmarks" where we could save links within metalink we frequently accessed or just wanted to make note of for whatever reason. I found it handy to not mess with "Favorites" in IE and instead use this for things like the ORA-00600 lookup tool.  

As for cut-paste, I must be really behind the times because a simple ctrl-insert and shift-insert doesn't paste into the new interface. Kind of a pain if I've got some stupid error phrase that I'm trying to look up.  

I know I can use the old interface, but I thought I'd at least point these 2 out if nothing else to have someone show me why I need to get with the times (still using SQL*Worksheet).

Apparently they've migrated Metalink to a new server or Metalink is available, or you can use old metalink:
