Hi Erix,

I guess I am being increasingly drawn to PostgreSQL, but I hadn't really considered SQLite until it came up in this discussion so prominently. I looked at the limits, but they are really design limits, not data limits. For instance it doesn't seem to limit the number of rows in a table, just the number of columns. Have I got that right? And maybe the blob limit is a bit low if you want to embed videos or HiRes photos, but not if you just store a URI to the media which could be held in a directory.

I'd be interested in any other details you have.

As you see from my other posts I currently have Firebird, with DBD::InterBase, and the DBD just crashes too regularly for comfort.
