  1. Love the podcast guys. I now have some new bluetooth ear-buds so I can walk around the office and still listen in. šŸ™‚

    The 3 ellipses button icon (“pea menu”) is common in many other apps. But looks like opinion is split and some like the hamburger.

    Google Chrome and Slack.com menu uses 3 ellipses but FireFox browser and Facebook uses hamburger menu. Microsoft Edge has the ellipses horizontal – not vertical.

    Many others use the mechanical wheel icon (Skype, Microsoft IE 11).

    So…. not sure why Oracle felt it so important to change.

    regards to all at PSADMIN.IO


  2. Has anyone tried to see if the 8.56 classic+ stylesheets can be applied to 8.55 objects? Curious to see what sort of level of effort is needed here.

  3. In the pscbo_stats section, what did you say you want to talk to the DBA about?
    “coincidentally we started talking about ps……. what?”
