    I guess I shouldn't jump to the conclusion that it's all  all Microsoft just because it's .asp running on IIS.

    Can you run MySQL or PostgresSQL or anything like that on with asp on IIS?

      Well, you are half correct on the assumptions.

      The website could handle MySQL, but I can't.  We've got some data in MySQL that we are going to port over to MS SQL Server here tomorrow.

      This is an iterative process.  As we get things better organized and built, the ability to search and use the data will grow.

      •  one question (0+ / 0-)

        do the people who volunteered their time know that a $5000 software license is required to access the data offline and do they approve?

          so I am not sure why anyone would have to pay a fee.
          If they can run excel, they can have the data.
          If they want to do more complex analysis, they will have to use software they pay the fee for.

        and do what I can to find help if you stop locking the data up.  I've not used windows in ten years.  I have absolutely no way to work with that data unless I go out and spend a few thousand bucks.  The whole point of a project like this is to facilitate access to information.  Locking it up in proprietary format is contrary to that goal.
