For those of us that have fought the battle of not wanting to use mySQL as a
"great" database platform for web systems I came across this on another site
I'm involved in. Thought you'd find it interesting (quoted w/permission)

Hint: Don't _Ever_ allow an indexed table in MySQL to exceed about 300,000
records.  This causes the database server (at least, in 3.22.x) to
throttle and die while managing the indexes.  :)

Now, can you imagine this "great" database that can't handle record counts >
300,000. I have work files that are > 300,000 records.
