Not only is your tone rude but your complaints are unfair and off-base.
1. Full text index support is planned by mysql "contributors".
I'm hoping for something soon.
2. Oracle's text-index implementation is an add-on, as is Sybase and
Informix's datablades. This is also not trivial to setup and
Only Texis has an optimized RDBMS for this. Be prepared to pay plenty.
About $10,000 more than Mysql of which you have paid what?
3. That's a really strange table you have there. What is it? You might
consider creating some static text files from it and index it with
like htdig(www.htdig.org) or IB2 (www.bsn.com). From there you can
back to your database if you'd like. There's always another way.
Jonathan, maybe you still have time for redemption, but I have a feeling
I'll modify my .procmailrc file soon.
