I could be very very very wrong on this, but I think that if you want to 
access MySQL through ASP you need an ODBC in between it and I think that will 
slow things down. Far as I know PHP uses the MySQL libraries and that SHOULD 
(again, I'm NOT sure) take away some of the extra overhead ODBC has and it 
should thus be faster with PHP. (Assuming you don't run PHP on a windows box, 
in which case you might need to use ODBC as well, but again, not sure about 
that, I never use any of these on windoze machines.... why get things so 
complicated when it runs so smooth with apache/php/mysql under linux...)
