Oh, come *on*. This has nothing whatsoever to do with Linux. It's an
operation on a toy "database" frontend on a system which is not only
incompatible with Linux, it's diametrically opposed in philosophy.
This is not a homework support group, it's a *Linux* *Users* *Group*.
Yes, the topics of conversation tend to wander all over the place,
into areas not directly connected with Linux, but this is ridiculous.
