John VanDyk: How to Hook PostgreSQL and Frontier Together via ODBC.

Thanks to everyone who came to the Scripting News dinner last night! I had a great time.

Here's Sheila, David Brown, Mira, and Dave on the Scripting News dinner.

I'm imagining Bill Gates at home singing along to his karaoke machine. (He's rich; undoubtedly he has a karaoke machine.) The song is a Clash cover of an old favorite. Bill sings:

Breaking rocks in the hot sun
I fought the law and the law won.
I needed money 'cause I had none
I fought the law and the law won.
I killed my baby and I feel so sad --
I guess my race is run.
She's the best baby that I ever had --
I fought the law and the law won.
I fought the law and the -- the law won.
His "baby" is of course Microsoft.

Does Bill sound like himself as he's singing, or is he trying to sing like Joe Strummer? He's all alone: I think he's trying to sing like Joe Strummer. He sounds like he needs to clear his throat.

If I can leave you with one final detail to sort of bring the image on home: Bill's taken off his glasses and tied a red-and-white bandanna around his head, a la Axl Rose.
