The furtherest I would go would be to offer a user option to ignore
case. If you find someone who thinks this is important enough to code
is another matter.

This I know. However, gnubg simply can't be the first program that has had to
deal with this. Couldn't the issue be solved by forcing players names to
upper case upon importing the file? Although personally I find this issue to be
a bit irritating, I am capable of working around it. The reason why I'm bringing
this up is because the majority of users aren't as well versed in data
manipulation as those of us who have spent our entire careers in the database
arena. I have always been an advocate for the end-user and it is difficult to
break from tradition. ;-)

Regarding the different backgammon servers, I have some thoughts but nothing
concrete at this moment. However, I don't believe this to be insurmountable.

Thanks for the link, I missed that one.

This was one of the first things I looked for prior to my original message. I
have been unable to get it to work. In Access, a list of tables does appear but
I am presented with an error when trying to attach one. Nothing appears at all
in SQL Server. Have you tried this driver? I wonder if anyone else has had
success with it.

AM> You are heartly invited to provide some code.

Unfortunately, C++ is not one of the languages I am fluent in. I would love to
be an active participant in this project. Perhaps one day a group will attempt a
.NET port.
