I'm not arguing with that, I'm saying that the cost of the mysql_connect could be nothing compared to doing a query on 50,000 rows and doing an order by random(). Of course I'm guessing about the number of rows - since the OP has given no indication on any of this it's all speculation until he spends some time figuring this stuff out. -- Postgresql & php tutorials http://www.designmagick.com/ -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
