I'm impressed with libgda so far. It has most of the API I need and the API seems to be sensible and seems to work. I recommend that other projects use it more so that it gets totally rock solid. I have had such bad experiences with other database-access APIs (MySQL, Sybase, the Roguewave tools.h++, Oracle) that I had started to feel they are cursed to be awful. I used to feel the same way about all C coders until I discovered GTK+. I'm happy to be proved wrong again.

Please. Stop.

This is one of my favourite end-of-thread messages ever.
