Well then do we say according to ECFR that most ORA-600 errors are caused due to higher power :)

Thanks Amar ... there seems to beasubtle difference between firefox on windows and firefox on Linux, to do with highlighting of text in a text box ... it's giving me double http syndrome.

ORA-600 errors are caused by Larry Ellison, and that's all us mortals need to know.

Don't know mate ... post shows up correctly when editing the HTML but when I preview it Blogger puts http://www.blogger.com in front of it,andwhen it gets published it turns into "http://oraclesponge.blogspot.comhttp://www" etc.

Stupid computers. Or are higher powers intervening ... ?

I like the Sky vodka add on the page, was there something else there? (duck)

It is sad that some people want to confuse facts and theories about facts with belief. (the Onion does do a good parody though)

Yes, I had to highlight the link that adewri had, right mouse click, and copy, open a new browser tab or window and then past in the URL. Then it worked.

Ah yes, Kansas: where the best dreams are made and travellers of yellow brick roads go to rest...

I can hear the Database Inquisition already: "we specialize in cleansing your systems of heretics and devils who worship the demons of science. Trust faith and pay us for that upgrade!"

Dave:
The original link in your post is missing a colon (:) after http.
http//www.theonion.com/news/index.php?issue=4133&n=2
And that seems to be an issue with the webpage bouncing to Microsoft.
If I type http// in Firefox on Windows it takes me to Microsoft by default. Curiously in IE it takes me to Google.

Any ideas why?

Regards,
Kishan.

Science is truly on the defense

This struck me as rather strange statement. "Science" cannot be on the defense, a certain scientific theory might be on the defense, not science. If you want to understand what I mean read this (in my opinion absolutely brilliant) speech:
http://www.crichton-official.com/speeches/speeches_quote04.html

quote from the speech:
"Science defends itself against the Skeptical Environmentalist." Really. Science has to defend itself? Is this what we have come to?

It is a comment on a satirical argument that lampoons Intelligent Design, of course, so it wan't serious.
