Hi, all

There has bee a lot said about this and it has all been pretty much right.

Now, let's get back to real issue - that, let's remember the question. As 
Mark said,

In five years, the app might need Oracle on multiple servers and several 
high-priced programmers. But for now, only get what you need (perhaps times 
2 for expansion). Grow the resources as the income and need grow.

It sounds like MySQL has, or can made to have, all that you need for right 
now. If it works, this is a very good way to begin.


ps: to the one that complained about caps, sorry 'bout that. :-)
