After three weeks here I finally know the way from the door to my desk. I have spent two days learning about Oracle’s Application Express, formerly known as HTMLDB. I have installed two blogs, one IM server, a Wiki and two forum packages on a virtual Ubuntu box inside my desktop WinXP machine, and my head’s about to explode.
Fortunately for me, my desktop box (and by inclusion my virtual machine) are hidden from the outside world, so although I have implemented security it need not be bombproof.
