Once again, only someone with some technical expertise really knows how to
use BI effectively and apparently you have none to speak of. You're a
clueless home user running around loose in the NG. You ran to the Gibson
site of all things to run too for some supporting evidence and did a little
reading and think you know something.
BI just happens to combine the two technologies.
You need to do a little reading and learn and basically stop posting
non-sense and insulting people like you're some kind of *clown* from *Hell*.
The same BI engine for the pc is the same one that's being used in some
ISS's enterprise IDS solutions.
