so i'd be curious to know a little about what everyone uses mysql for professionally (or personally) in this group so far. here is some background and what i use mysql for right now:

as introduced, i work for ask.com, iwon.com, excite.com, myway.com and some other sites. can't give a lot of information away about details, but i can tell you i use perl/C and mysql/postgresql for our analytics systems as well as data warehousing. i've used mysql for over 8 years now and love it. even though i have started using postgresql as well since joins are faster for warehousing there opposed to mysql. but for storing massive amounts of data, and simple pulls, mysql is great and outperforms any database we have. we also use oracle and berkerlydb.

looking forward to talking to you all!
