    it seems like whenever I connect to a separate database using mysql_connect and then close it when Im done it interferes with the wordpress calls? I changed the variable names and it fixes some problems, but it still retrieves none of the categories. Is there some kosher way to use other databases?

    See this outline from Scriptygoddess that describes one way to go about it:
