You can now read and post messages to DBWorld through the Web. Anyone can browse messages, but you must register to obtain a DBWorld posting password before you can post messages through the Web. Posted messages are sent immediately to the dbworld list without being moderated by the list owner (Raghu Ramakrishnan). (Posting messages that are not appropriate to this list can lead to loss of posting privileges, so please avoid posting irrelevant messages.) Once you register, you can also change your password.

If you can't post through the Web interface for any reason, contact Jeff Ballard ballard@cs.wisc.edu and AnHai Doan anhai@cs.wisc.edu.
