I was working Friday night and all weekend. The few times Sunday evening it worked, my CSI's were missing. All I can say is that you got lucky.

It did not start becoming somewhat available until after noon Monday, and I am still not convinced its reliable.

So... my metalink is working fine, after i had to re-log in again this morning. I can see all the new stuff with Flash, etc. I'm sorry if i'm adding more flames to these flames about metalink, but i'm not seeing any problems today after their upgrade. i even opened a new SR and the tech already got back to me in a couple of hours (which never happened before).  

I've been going through the posts from the weekend and laughing at the silliness. Kinda sucks that the read-only metalink never worked... but are people still having issues today?

I don't know how else to put this besides fiasco- this is totally unacceptable for a company as large at Oracle. Metalink has been effectively down for 3 days now.  

I have patches to download, problems to research and service requests to update. My company spends millions of dollars a year alone for Oracle Support. The read-only Metalink never worked, and the Oracle support phone lines are saturated.  

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being completely dissatisfied, and 10 being ultra happy, I can safely say I am not in the 6-10 range.
