Quest Error Manager new version and forum

Quest Error Manager has now a new version (1.3.7)
That version has the following changes (made by me with Steve "blessing"):
1)add trigger to populate environmental info to q$error_context
2)q$error_instance_ir trigger: add web environment variables log (if available)
3)corrected commentaries in example scripts and cleaned unused variables
4)add missing example file from the last versions: QEM in APEX

1) is very important if you want to use partitioned tables

Also a new forum for Quest Error Manager discussion has open http://qem.inside.quest.com/ and I am one of the moderators and will try to answer any question. Some threads from the CodeGen forum where discussions about QEM were made have been moved to this new forum.

The PL/SQL Challenge will launch on 1 April 2010

"The Challenge is free and simple: you play the quiz each weekday. We keep score. You get ranked. Every three months, the top-ranking players compete in a quarterly championship to award first, second and third prizes. Cash prizes, among others. But that's not all. Every month, we will raffle off other prizes to anyone who played the quiz that month. And the more you play, the greater your chance of winning. "
