I need to remind myself to take backups every now and then, as while the training is pretty comfortable and fast, I tend to break the database every now and then. Had the infamous DBRunRecovery-problem a couple times and now managed to do this :).

Nah, not a thing. I'm using the Spambayes binary stuff now, but used to run the Python scripts way back when and installed Python for that purpose. I don't use Python much, so have not updated it, although I keep promising myself to learn at least the basics of the language someday <grin>.
