Subject No support Q's here, please! WAS Re: [IB-Architect] SuperServer vs. Classic
Author Helen Borrie
Hi all, especially recent arrivals to this list:

Please avoid posting anything remotely like a support question to this list!

This one is purely for discussions of the architecture. That takes enough
concentration and consumes enough time, all by itself, without extra noise
from folk wanting advice.

Sorry - you must take these questions to interbase@... or (if
appropriate to community effort) to IBDI@....

Thanks for your consideration.
