Maybe I'm missing something, but "order by fieldname desc limit 1" usually
gets me the record where the field has the largest value (or smallest
In this case:
select UserName, Created
where UserName = 'MyUserName'
order by Created desc limit 1
To simple to work? mySQL knows how to optimize this type of query.
