Yeah - caching makes *such* a difference. Neraly all of AngloINFO runs from an Access backend, with 250,000 page views a month. And (barring a couple of areas in the online admin section) *everything* is cached, mostly using arrays in one form or another. Of course, the databases aren't huge (a couple of Mb)... ------------------- Mike Hardaker Founder & Publisher AngloINFO www.angloinfo.com (Web) wap.angloinfo.com (WAP) > -----Original Message----- > From: thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org > [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org]On Behalf Of Raymond Camden > Sent: Wednesday, April 04, 2001 9:23 PM > To: thelist at lists.evolt.org > Subject: RE: [thelist] is Access enough? > > > I use Access for Death Clock, which doesn't have a large amount > of data, but > does have a large amount of traffic.
