    (1) The genealogy idea of Frank’s is a good one, I like it.
    Ok, how about something that could benefit the ADUG site itself ?
    The site sure needs a spuce up.

    (2) How about we use mySQL as a database ?
    Apparently it powers 40 percent of the world’s databases. John is thinking it might be good for all of us, to get some familiarity with it.

    Thanks for your input John. Good to see you back in Perth.

    A revamp of the web site is planned. We dont have a firm start date as it will be done by volunteers, but I expect it will be sometime in the next few months

    Nexus and SQLlite are the databases that were discussed at the meeting. We prefer a database that will work on all platforms but that is not essential. We can swap databases in and out as we are talking about them at the monthly meetings so if we cover MySQL at a meeting we can plug it into the application for that night
