Actually I wasnt implying that you did it that way, I was only explaining how I do it and that my board isnt as busy as others are. Maybe in 5 or 6 years It will be that big, but time will tell.

I have had nothing but trouble with IRC Servers and try to stay as far away from those as possible. Flash Chat works fine for me for what I want to do and bandwidth really isn't that big of an issuse being I dont have thousands of users on my site. (less than 500) Besides I have way more than 30 GB per month.
Anyway were drifting off topic back to databases please...
