On the subject of databases, are any of these remotely compatible
with Oracle? (188.8.131.52.0). I'm required to use Oracle for
a database subject I'm studying at uni, but would prefer
to use something compatible at home, but none of Postgres,
mysql (when I got it working; I can't remember how to start
the server now!) or mSQL will accept the create table commands
given, complaining about the datatypes. I understand this
might be an SQL-standard deficiency though.
