Absolutely, I'm sure it's just something I'm doing wrong. One of the
factors may be that I have MySQL on the slowest hard drive known to

Yep. Which is what makes me think that some sort of helper functions
between the raw SQL queries and your code would be quite nice.

Thanks for that. I've installed MySQL and it works though, so I'm
reluctant to fix things that aint broke.
My performance is pretty bad. The server is no mean machine to be sure
and it's not on the same machine as the REBOL, but they're on the same
network. Quite odd. I guess I'll shift the REBOL to run on the same
machine and that ought to help.
