Purchasing InnoDB Hot Backup

Bought a copy of InnoDB Hot Backup today. Don't know if I should be ashamed or proud of it being my first transaction with another currency (not counting Canada).

Went just as smooth as any transaction I've made with a US company, was glad that the site offers instructions in English.

The InnoDB folks were fast. I made the payment on Luottokunta at 2:45pm, sent a corresponding email with more details to InnoDB at 2:49pm and received the confirmation email with attached license at 3:25pm.

Have been using my own script to automate the backup process each night (using some of the included mysql tools). Works great for MyISAM tables, but using InnoDB table types changes everything about the backup and restore process. Over the summer we're converting all our tables to InnoDB.
