Every now and again I see people coming up on IRC asking for help. That's normal, we're there to help (and share lol cat pictures). However, it always amazes me when someone is asking for something like this:
Is mysql a good option for a database that has 500.000.000.000 records?
Sure if you're insane! But that's not even the point here. My question is: why is someone so inexperienced taking over a job like that? Clearly that person don't have the know how.
