The at sign works fine for suppressing error messages from mysql, but I usually have 
it at the beginning of the assignment, as in:

@ $number = mysql_num_rows($result_var);

Is there any reason to do this versus the way Richard mentioned (having the @ before 
the mysql statement)? 

Are there any downsides to doing this at all? I understand it can make you lazy later 
on and not bother doing error checking, for one...
