    WOW! I wish they'd reduce their posting goal. Because it takes a while for me to reach there. <br />Work hard Brad!, You are only 86 posts short of this goal <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />

I'm actually thinking about reviewing there software at work anyway.<br /><br />MeanOldDBA<br />derrickleggett@hotmail.com<br /><br />When life gives you a lemon, fire the DBA.

    A nice pick Frank (I concur) and I feel the quality of posts in forum is as good as mustard though more goodies were introduced previously.

    Nothing wrong with wearing the clown mask from time to time. <br />One shouldn't take himself too serious.
