Yes, I have a full msdn/technet library stretching back pretty much the 
best part of a decade. (I was once a gold certified microsoft solutions 
partner, with all the crappy pseudo-qualifications that you need to be 
such a thing. ;-)

This is why we only need a backup copy of the database. MS SQL 6 has 
tools that allow you to do this for replication to remote servers.

This is why we don't need to bother Jeff with installing anything on his 
server or doing extra work to export in a different format. All we need 
is the database, or a temporarily open secure odbc connection.

- Seb.
