Just to clarify, Michael is right on the money here. Connections to 
MySQL on the members.evolt.org server are limited to the localhost for 
obvious security reasons.

Also, its not a good idea to go banging away on the MySQL port. Certain 
firewall scripts take that as a DOS attack and can block your entire 
class C IP range from the server(i'm suprised todds email even got 
through to the list server) :)
