Hi Gustaf

Thanks for the clarification (especially about potential problems with nsdbi - I can look out for them in case I hit them).

There's so much power lying in just Naviserver, Tcl pages, nsdbi/nsdb, postgresql. My test database has tables with 50 million rows, getting average request-response times on the url client of 20 - 50 ms (the tests exercise random access over the data in the tables). That's with no tuning, just a standard install from your script.

I really like being able to use the Naviserver console as a REPL. That facility should really appeal to those who use dynamic languages on the front-end.

Regards Bernard
