Mike... I fail to see where I have said anything wrong... it is just a "matter of fact". I like Web Assist products, I agree in terms of support on these forums, and I am not angry - I am simply expressing my frustrations... I simply cannot move on with the old product (DataBridge) without MySQLi support.
Ray can keep providing us with a moving deadline (now 3+ years and counting) but I don't have that luxury with my customers. That is my "dose of reality", and I accepted that about 2 years ago :)
