hehe, cute question.
I think for your purposes, MySql is probably most appropriate. After all,
if you can get it to do what you need, you can't beat the price of it.
Re: Which database is best?
This is a very long and convaluted question for which you really need to
identify many criteria from which to disearn an answer.
Here's a couple questions you need to answer, first:
Is cost of db software licensing an issue?
What capabilities does the project require?
Oracle licensing can be very expensive.
Most databases fall inbetween for price/capabilities
Mysql has limited capabilities.
Oracle might be a pain, but you'll find that true of all datbases to one
extent or another. Oracle is the most capable, but comes with a heavy
price tag also.
For a run anywhere application, consider MySQL. A lot of ISP's can offer
it, the same won't be true of Oracle, not for a long time to come.... ;-)
