I apologise, I post then depart for a couple of days and am unable to reply.
I don't mean to be rude.


Yes it's a plain tab delimited text file so I'll follow your link and give
it a go. Thanks.

Well this is interesting. As far as I can tell mySQL is just an option
On-Rev offers, you are not charged more for using it, so what you are
suggesting is that all the On-Rev users who don't use dbs, and those who use
postgreSQL rather than mySQL are all subsidising the mySQL users.

Seems to me then that the claims that non-profits can use these dbs for free
are false. In fact it's probably worse than that, non-profits who don't even
use dbs at all, like individuals/clubs who might have a simple web page, are
subsidising commercial ventures that use mySQL.
