This months Linux Journal has an article on using FreeTDS with Perl. Didn't even know it was coming until I saw it. Pretty cool.
In other news, I've almost got Access 2000 support working in MDB Tools, and OpenDRDA is making slow steady progress with the beginnings of a ODBC driver.
Someday I'll get back to working on my TDS dissector for ethereal, but that's been tabled for the moment.
