I tried to grab his scripts but both his "here" links return a 404 Not 
Found.

One interesting point ... he does:

     * A failing query for the user.
     * A query for the alias-user.
     * A query for alias-username in the dotqmails-table.
     * A query for alias-default in the dotqmails-table.

Four queries that most likely can be done with a single query ... gotta 
wonder about these MySQL-trained wunderkinds and their ability to write 
decent queries.
