As i have it the returned 'dataset' is stored line per line to 'row'.

'dataset' in here is a 'list of tuples' right?
'row' in here is a tuple form the above list of tuples right?

Am i understanding this correctly?!

It was a tuple. But it migth as well be a list too?!?!

Could 'dataset' be a 'list of lists' as well?

How one would know in which way the returned mysql data is saved in?

Cool! I myself like this solution best over the all working other!
very nice approach thank you very much! Is what i anted and couldn't
write myself!

But please tell me if in my example 'row' was a tuple, what kind of
objects is 'host', 'hits', 'dt' here and how do they sore the data?

Thanks again for the cool examples!
