I see now that his private emails had the [IBO] flag still in it and so I
was thinking they were on the list rather than just private.

I always want discussions like this to be in the public eye so that everyone
knows if there is a problem and how to avoid it and also such that everyone
will be able to participate in the solving of the problem.

IBO has been around a very long time and I am innundated regularly with
private emails from people and it takes a great amount of my time to handle
it all. I don't mind doing it but it does dampen the time I have to
actually be working under the hood.

I'd like to encourage everyone to use the list whenever possible.
Especially where with this case I have not had the time to delve deeply into
something that I still have a very high level view of. There is a certain
amount of due diligence that I expect people to do before they have me
directly involved with a problem because 9 times out of 10 I still end up
either educating someone of dealing with something that was their problem.

As I said earlier, where IBO may be slower than the other competitor's
products is in the time to prepare statements. If there are hordes of query
objects and you are having them prepared ahead of time (which is fine in
most cases) then IBO is going to come in a bit slower. However, once the
wait is over, then IBO should be much snappier and more interactive when
configured and used correctly.
