I didn't I say anywhere it was extremely fast, But for showing what Delphi
is capable in terms of dynamic pages / ISAPI, I think it is extremely good.
If you look at the Guest Page you'll even see that David Intersimone (
Inprise's VP of Developer relations ) says it's a "cool site".
I'm sure if you offered to put a T1 line in Shiv's house or to host the
Matlus site, I would be surprised if he complains. If you really want to
show the site off to a prospective client, why not ask Shiv if he is able
to lend you the site so you can demo it to a client from you T1 line as
another option.

I you're worried about speed ( as you have indicated above ) forget ODBC
and hook straight into InterBase's API.
