I can concur with this... Seems like there's a certain niche wherein
you could probably a fair bit of money, but you'd hate yourself for
doing it. :-)

Okay, now you're scaring me. I'm not an RDBMS person, but I consider
myself to fall into the Unix/C camp... Well, Unix/C and the usual host
of scripting languages. I'm with David where "objects" are concerned...
I've never quite understood the lure. So if I don't jump on the
"object" bandwagon (at some level), my only alternative, long-term, is
to write apps for Win95/NT-wielding machines? Ouch.
