Please *don't* post to perl.dbi.users on google (or via any other news reader).
perl.dbi.users is gatewayed from the email@example.com mailing list, but it's *only one way*.
If you post to perl.dbi.users very few people will see it. Please post to firstname.lastname@example.org (you don't need to subscribe in order to post, and you won't be automatically subscribed either).
p.s. The same goes for these forums. Very few people use them for dbi or driver support. dbi-users is where you'll get the best support.
