RE: Oracle-l and edu Addresses

You should now have posting privileges to the Oracle-L mailing list.


I was finally able to get in touch w/ Steve Adams. He suffered from an index corruption in his mailbox, and lots of mail "disappeared". Sounds like he's back in business, and was able to recover most of his mail.

Also, I volunteered to help Steve out with admin stuff and he took me up on my offer. So, as of now, I can do admin type stuff like adding posting privs for new users, etc.

This is by no means a transition. I just offered to help out. Steve is, and will continue to be, the list owner. Being that I'm in Southeast Michigan, and he is in Sydney, Australia, the large timezone differential should help with something closer to 7x24 coverage for admin type issues. Plus, it's always good to have a backup if, for example, someone's mailbox is corrupted! :-)

This is Martin McCormick from Oklahoma State University. I picked your name from the oracle-l list as you were the most recent poster from an edu address so I apologize for the message out of the blue, so to speak.

        Did you have to do anything specific beside requesting permission to post from

        I have been trying for a solid month to request posting privileges with no response at all. I do see the email appear to be received but I never have gotten any kind of reply from that address. This is odd as I have not gotten in to any trouble on this list or any other for that matter so this appears to be a technical problem.

Thanks for any ideas or information you might have.
