Internet Explorer is the only browser which can run executable files. I don't know any other browser which supports this feature. Of course there are common reason why! With IE you need to use VBScript. As we all know it is not secure way of developing web application. So be careful in creating security rules inside your Internet Explorer.
I finally managed to make it to the OEM 11g release session, which was just a satellite feed from New York that everyone else in the world could see. However, had some live Oracle people here to answer any questions after the presentation.
Unfortunately, I did not get their names as I was 40 minutes late.
I haven't used OEM in years so it was all new stuff to me. The additions did look pretty cool though especially the ability to drill down into specific applications to locate performance problems.
The day started out with the realization that I pulled off the best (COLLABORATE - self annointed) prank ever. Twitter was...all atwitter about the fact that Mark Rittman was Oracle's Person of the Year. Of course it wasn't true. If you look at the picture, you'll realize that he's wearing exactly the same clothes in the magazine cover as he is in real life.
It was probably made possible by: 1. The presenter kept calling me and hassling me (joking) 2. The presenter had laptop issues and asked if he could use mine in case his disintegrated during the presentation. (true story)
