Anyone out there have any good references to good tutorials on Database Connectivity and Perl?

a short guide to DBI [perl.com] is a good place to start.
the authoritative source is [dbi.perl.org...] which is essentially tim bunce's online resource for that book.
on cpan there are html and powerpoint versions of the slides for tim's Advanced Perl DBI talk [search.cpan.org].
