My big question is
Why are you asking off-topic Unix questions in a forum about Oracle RDBMS?

Ah, I see what I did. I thought I was posting to a generic "General" forum, however, this is the "General" sub forum WITHIN the Oracle Database forum - my bad.
I know we had some areas on this site for other topics, (ie Java, Linux, etc), and I was trying to get to there, but it's the first time I wanted to post outside of Oracle topic - and I did it wrong. Sorry about that.
Is it possible to move this thread to this forum, perhaps? where it might be more "on-topic"?
