My friends, you are truly life-savers.  Thanks very much!

How on Earth do you know this stuff? =)  I saw all of these in the User's
Guide (re: now(), interval keyword, etc.), but in no way would figure this
was how they were put together!

Aside from the few in the FAQ, is there a list of commonly-done queries?
There are some for SELECT and whatnot, but maybe asking for that for these
far-out ones is too much.

Thanks again all ;)

- A very grateful Rob Slifka
