I saw in some offtopic posts that you guys wanted to know the basics of SQL (Server Query Language) so you can help me out when something's wrong and I'm not there. (This goes mainly to Haven)

Well here it goes. it's a database system powered by the international SQL syntaxes. So... it's supported (mostly) by all the major SQL systems (msSQL, SQLite, etc).

This method is more structured than using text files, and is much faster.

Just ask questions ok?

Well I always thought it as a database thats why most of the Messenge Boards need SQL Database to store the users and their posts ofcourse now a Flat File using only text files is being made it's made by Invision also.

for all u lazy asses out there, i looked it up:

que∑ry Pronunciation Key (kwÓr)
n. pl. que∑ries
A question; an inquiry.
A doubt in the mind; a mental reservation.
A notation, usually a question mark, calling attention to an item in order to question its validity or accuracy.

SQL is awesome, it makes searching so much faster. the beauty of it is that you can use it in other languages, you're not limited to using it separately (i.e. you can use it with VS.NET)

The new SQLite that comes with PHP5 ROCKS. it's so much more efficient, most of the time.
