Hmmmm. On my "my account" page there is a heading "My services," under there is Groups - Manage subscriptions. The Manage subscriptions link goes to the page where it shows which groups I have "joined." I'm guessing you don't see that link? This join thing is google specific, it may have shown up for me because I joined other groups, then posted on cdos (actually, I've posted on cdos for much longer). I don't remember joining cdos, but that doesn't mean I didn't. It may have automatically shown up when google consolidated stuff. I can also get to that screen from the page, there is a link "Manage my memberships" between "My groups" and "My topics with recent activity" (which just now shows your post that I'm replying to). If you don't see either of the links I've mentioned, maybe you have to join a google group like oracle_dba_experts to get it to show up.

If you still don't see any of this, contact me offline by changing the to in my address. I may be slow responding because my home router died, then the new one was bogus, so I'm waiting for an RMA, and having to manually change cables between family members computers to share the cable modem <sigh>.


-- is bogus.
