Hi Lester, you - if anyone - could really complete the picture by
commenting the bits that Claudio didn't think were possible to change,
but which may bring this whole tread "on-topic":

If I remember correctly, you were in deep trouble with InterBase some
years ago, but in the end finally succeeded (to a large extent due to

experienced those situations?
