I beat my head against my desk once already, and I'm sure it'll happen at least once more finding out about the differences between MySQL running on a Windows 2003 Enterprise server and a Mindrake Linux 1o.o server. In one of my applications I'm setting a default variable, thisMonth, to a null string. The target column is defined as an integer. When I do the insert into my table i use single quotes around my variable, even though it's an int. Although this may not be a best practice it works fine when my variable isn't defined and I want to insert a null value into thisMonth... on the linux server anyway.
My own personal experience with Sorbs is that they suck. They incorrectly listed us as part of a dynamic IP range likely to generate spam. WRONG! Apparently they're using a database of IPs that hasn't been maintained since 2003. Why bother? My advice to anyone looking to curb spam is to use a RBL, but whatever you do don't use Sorbs.
