Many thanks all!
I think that I'm going to investigate both options..
With the data I capture, I'm gonna need to do some calculations, make
a few graphs based on that data...

But as long as the data is in the DB, I can get it and do what I want to it...

Basically, what I'm building is weblog viewer for a client...
One bod enters in a bunch of stats (using forms that I'll create using
CCK for example)
and then the view takes that data and prettys it up for some big wig
to drool over for a few moments...

Seems like it's doable... ;-p

Right.. a reading I will go...!!
