tools to make tools

For three years I have worked on a large data-collection project that uses MS Access .MDB files, and for three years I have wondered if I would ever be able to work with those files on linux. Today I started tinkering with mdbtools, a project that aims to do just that. It's definitely still in development, but I have to say that opening up a data file in mdbtools' little GUI window is very exciting. If you have the need, check it out.
