I've been working with Mysql for the past two years and really love it.
I find it fast, secure and easy to use. I've been writting cgi-perl
scripts for the same amount of time and have created a few good projects
that interface over the web.
My question is this. Could you please send me some data discribing how
Mysql matches up to FileMakerPro and Oracle.
I am not trying to say that one is better then another. I would like to
see it being support more on the campus I work at and was told by the
computer center that Mysql projects couldn't be supported because Mysql
can't handle large data sets, it is slow and It is not a try database?
I don't think any of this is true and I would like to educate myself as
well as get some facts to educate others about Mysql.
We have both, Filemaker Pro and Oracle, available on campus. Guess I am
trying to light a fire for adding Mysql to this list.
My background is in Art - Painting and Printmaking with a degree from
the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
I find working with a Linux server, Apache, Cgi-Perl scripts and
creating Mysql databases to be like creating a painting or a print.
The creativity in bringing a new project to life is very rewarding. Of
course I'm still learning how to care for all these projects after their
Thanks in advance for any info.
