RE: Flash-only MetaLink :-(

You mean you want to search using some keywords but excluding some other? This page, which I bookmark, does that:

Unfortunately, it's metalink2, so may go away soon. (If you remove 2, it will be redirected to metalink2.)

On general-pupose search sites (Google etc), you can use keywords "word1 -word2" (no quotes) to exclude word2. It looks like this syntax only works in MyOracleSupport, not Classic.

That's actually one bright spot in the flash version -- it's called PowerView, and does indeed do what you describe, although I do need to turn it off occasionally to grab articles that are possibly misplaced.
