It would have been sooner had I not got roped into an emergency where I
Law mandated a program be in place on the 1st of July and the people
assigned to it were not coming through sufficiently so I got handed some
rather large tasks to do in a few days. I have done about 3-4 man-weeks of
work in the last 6 days my boss figured. Been living on the floors almost
every day now for a week. It simply must be done and for some reason I'm the
one everyone is looking to to get it there. Lucky me. It's been a great test
for IBO4. I did find one more bug and fixed it but other than that IBO4 is
proving itself to be a great release. It is especially excellent for our web
apps with the built-in paging of large datasets without having to fetch all
rows or mess around with complex SQL to do the paging.

Anyway, back to the salt mines. Not done yet. Still writing the replication
