Re: too many ora_pXXX pop-up?

I've lost count of how many scripts I have collected/written over the years; 
it's in the thousands, I suspect (20+ years of being an Oracle DBA) and I still 
have a good number of them on a flash drive for safekeeping.  If there's 
anything you need or want just ask as I may have a script (or two dozen) you 
might like.

Thank you for the assist on the scripts!  I lost my PC harddrive this morning 
and am still restoring back to my full glory...:)  Sheesh, how many scripts can 
I collect in just four months! :)
