[REBOL] Re: Cal =?ISO-8859-1?Q?Dixon=B4s?= webserver

Thanks for pointing me the right way of using Cal=B4s :[ ]: sequence. It
works like a charm now :).
I=B4ll take a look at Cheyenne though I found Cal=B4s webserver very
simple to use (no installation required).
By the way DocKimbel=B4s mysql driver is a fabulous piece of code and I
have been using it for 4 years with no problems at all.
