So... my metalink is working fine, after i had to re-log in again this morning. 
 I can see all the new stuff with Flash, etc.  I'm sorry if i'm adding more 
flames to these flames about metalink, but i'm not seeing any problems today 
after their upgrade.  i even opened a new SR and the tech already got back to 
me in a couple of hours (which never happened before).

I've been going through the posts from the weekend and laughing at the 
silliness.  Kinda sucks that the read-only metalink never worked... but are 
people still having issues today?

Subject: Metalink Fiasco

I don’t know how else to put this besides fiasco-  this is totally unacceptable 
for a company as large at Oracle.  Metalink has been effectively down for 3 
days now.
I have patches to download, problems to research and service requests to 
update.  My company spends millions of dollars a year alone for Oracle Support. 
 The read-only Metalink never worked, and the Oracle support phone lines are 
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being completely dissatisfied, and 10 being ultra 
happy, I can safely say I am not in the 6-10 range.
