Yes it was enough, but I can not imagine it has not been done yet for
MySql either :)

It was a open statement where I expected like 10 different databases
responses. For example if you go to a dinner place you have never been
gone before and want to try something new and there is no menu
available. What do you ask ? You just say something similar. "I would
like to order a salet please with some red wine." I don't think any
one of you would expect the waiter to answer,"And your question is?" I
also think the waiter does not expect me to ask 10 similar questions
like "red wine 1991? red wine 1992? red wine 1993? until i hit
something that is on the menu"

So the final questions was, is there anything els on the menu besides
PostgreSQL, like MySql for example ? If not I will take PostgreSQL
