Hi Casey,

> What would you do?

The problem with using a memory-resident table on a website is that it's
your server memory that it's resident in! and it's not always obvious
when it's OK to throw the table away again.

If a user comes to the site, does a search, then leaves straight away,
how long do you wait before you throw away the memory resident table?

I think in your situation I'd be more likely to go for something like
approach 2: build a more complex query and hit the database again.



Yup.  It does.  Thanks.
