Thanks Roger, thanks Billy!

I didn't find it because I didn't know the name of this "brief description"!
So I was looking for it as "database name" or "database title" or
"database brief description"..
..from the bible to Ursula LeGuin: if you know the name of something,
you can rule it!

thanks again
paolo
