n't compare with IBX, since they are not only connectivity.
I highly raccomand you using them, even if you don't have many records. Aft=
er a "shocking" start time, you will find yourself to be far more productive=

you spend. If you are not, you can have them for free contributing to their=
improvement or asking the author for, under certain conditions, a free lice=
