It will also give me a little extra time. This week has been a tad busy 
work wise for me I've not been able to do anything at all (only now have I 
been able to find time to download the 800 emails that were waiting for me 
:-( )

Not on my front except:

JDBC1.2 driver needs testing (still can't get JDK1.1.8 to install here).
The JDBC 2.1 Enterprise Edition driver also needs some testing.

The JDBC2.1 Standard Edition driver is ready. Some new patches to look at.

PS: Did you know we are only 1 thing short of being JDBC compliant with the 
JDBC2.1 SE driver?

The other not implemented bits are extras not technically (according to the 
spec) needed for compliance. But then there's not many of them either 
(about 11 at last count excluding CallableStatement - which isn't required 
which I was surprised about when I check it last weekend).
