    I am using FF 3.5 and Flash 9, and the video isn't starting, though it works on IE8 on the same PC.

    Brilliant presentation, I liked it a lot!



    I liked how he went into enough detail on how and why they designed things.

    We can debate most of their decisions for ever, and we probably will!



    Best of luck!

  • Well...Congrats. I guess...

    So you have constructed a database over a database? (Maybe you could have used the master database directly...?)
    And then web-site interface (like simplified-web-TOAD) over that to get all coding as configuring... As if customers like to configure.



    Usually price of ultimate configurability is that you lose compiler intelligence (and all functionality).
    But it doesn't matter if it is a "paltform" and actually does nothing by itself.
