I operate a small game site for kids.  On this site, the players  can, among
other things, buy virtual items.  I have each item stored in a table called
"items" in a mysql database.  The type is one column in that table, but it
is a number, not a name.  When I want to display items with the item name, I
have to send a query to the item_types table to get the type name.  The
problem is, if a user has 50 items, it takes 50 queries to get the types.
Is there any better way?
