  2. Download Ubuntu Linux Server image (
  3. Setup the Linux image in a virtual Machine.
  4. Add Oracle sources to Ubuntu Linux.

Some doubts.

#Is this possible?
Oracle 10g is only possible for OS X Server only.

#Is there a workaround for this?
Yes, Setting a Linux image and install Oracle in it. It needs specific space, so Oracle can fit properly under the image.

#Is it possible to run it in a 64bit Linux server?
No, Oracle 10g can only be setup in a 32bit edition.

Google has launched "Google Moderator," a group question tool built on Google's app engine.

Google Moderator allows anyone attending a function or forum to submit a question, and then give other participants a way to vote on whether or not that question should be asked to who ever is on stage. The theory being that the most popular and relevant questions would, according to Google, rise to the top so that the presenter or the moderator of an event could run the discussion more efficiently and in a transparent manner.

The new service was originally used internally within Google. Stan Schroeder at Mashable notes that "Sometimes it seems to me that the most useful of Google's projects come from their engineers 20-80 rule."

When you create a large document in Confluence, it is nice to add links that jump back to the top of the page where your table of contents might be (its also nice to give your users a table of can use the {toc} marco to do this).

Normally you need an anchor you can jump to so it look like this in html:

<a name="top"></a>

<a href="#top">Jump to top</a> 

So implementing this means putting an anchor at the top of your page. But the highest you can go in the wiki view is to to the content you can jump to the real top of the page

Note Browser Differences

Some browsers will honor the #top link without an anchor, but others will not.

Our Solution
You can also jump to any page element with a name or id. It just so happens that conflunence has a body tag with the id="com-atlassian-confluence"

So you have 2 options:
1) You can put this on your page anywhere you want a link to the top:

{html}<a href="#com-atlassian-confluence">Back to Top</a>{html}

You have to add the {hmtl} tag because [#com-atlassian-confluence] converts to the anchor to "pagename-comatlassianconfluence" when rendered so it won't work.

2) Recommended you can do like I did and create a user macro - {topofpage}
To do this:

  • Go to Administration > User Macros
  • click create marco
  • name it topofpage
  • uncheck the marco has body! (this is important - I forget to do this and every other section of my content disappeared)
  • put this in the body:
     <a href="#com-atlassian-confluence">Back to Top</a>
