in reply to The NodeReaper is...

I would just like to take the time to ask a question to anyone who voted or will vote "All of The Above".

How can it be "Frightening" and "Not to be feared" at the same time??!

Or is he on some kind of anger-management drug, where he is kind when he pops a few pills, but frightening when he forgets to take them??

    I voted for All of the Above, and rationalized it as follows. The Node Reaper is frightening, in that he may cause fear among users here. However, he is not to be feared, as he only reaps nodes that warrant it, which is a valuable service. Thus, he is feared, but the fear is unjustified.
      I voted for "...not to be feared" and was just about to type in the lyrics for "Dont fear the Reaper" (-Blue oyster cult) when I saw that extremely, and lemming sortof, beat me to it.
      I have a nephew (17) who *almost* got "it is foolish to fear what can't be avoided" (in latin) tattooed on his ... something. In the end (ahem) he went w/ the Blues Traveler's cat on his shoulder. Point being ..., er, well the justification sounds much more impressive in latin.

    I voted all of the above only because I want to love the nodereaper and because he isn't to be feared as long as you keep the questions intelligent. Otherwise, then fear him!

[Corion]: Yay. I've now published (at $work) that random Excel workbook where on one sheet you enter your SQL and on the other sheet, you have a button and receive the results. I'm so evil in enabling cow-orkers to self-supply ;)
[Corion]: It's close to my Perl script where you paste in the SQL and get the result as XLSX file, but I guess the Excel sheet is more user-friendly :)
[choroba]: What drivers does it support? ;-)
[erix]: sounds cool -- but now you have to give SQL lessons?
