3:13 A cloud question: accessing files vis sftp from a database cloud service
21:46 A question on Real Application Security
25:40 A question on cursor variables from StackOverflow
30:49 Accessing packaged constants in SQL
32:40 A look at some new(er) features in PL/SQL, including PL/Scope doing SQL Statement analysis
49:06 How to identify deprecated code
