no I think he meant that you can use the oAuth for EITHER the desktop or

the web.  You wouldn't even need to store the username; just the token 
and the token_secret.  And the database can be anything from an actual 
RDBMS to a text file stored on the server (although with the fact that 
almost every web host that you pay for provides at least MySQL and the 
fact that text files are notoriously insecure you should be thinking 
about upgrading).


Yeh but John, who is going to install MySQL for a desktop client?

You're still thinking webapps instead of desktop (yes I realize I'm in
the minority here).
