Response to: dp independent interface?

> I see in this example that you use MySQL specific database calls, so I'm curious to know *why*. I realize it's easiest to just write code to *one* database, but it would be much more portable to write code to a database independent interface

You are correct. It was something I could have done. It would have been adding one more variable/one more thing to explain to the article and demo. I felt I was introducing a few different concepts as it was, so I focused on them.
