FWIW there are a number(20-30) of people subscribed to thelist from what most of us would consider 'big corps' .. Why some of them have never choosen to post is beyond me.. But then I've probably only noticed that most of our subscribers from 'big corps' dont post only because they are from big corps, if you know what i'm saying.. There are *hundreds* of people that never post to thelist, only lurk. thats cool, i just think i personally notice it more when those bigcorp people sign up and never post, rather than some random hotmail.com address.. holy tangent! :) <tip type="mysql utils"> MySql has a nifty little utility that will repair and optimze database files for you. The mysqlcheck program will repair and optimize datafiles for you automatically, and it works pretty well if you ever find yourself with some corrupted data. Run it through a cron job once a week to optimize any larger databases you may have as well.. </tip> .djc.
