I expected these sort of responses, I accept that you guys do *MORE* than
enough, my post was in no way meant to be a personal thing...

I was simply confused/concerned at the statements being made, and was just
trying to raise awareness of the unix camp.

I suppose people in glass houses and all...

Somebody needs to take responsibility for checking the Unix version.
Are you volunteering?

(Hiroshi does quite enough work around here already; if he doesn't want
to run portability checks on the ODBC code, I can hardly blame him.)
