    I need somebody to write an application

    I need a programmer to write a web app for me running on MySQLor some DB - just something to do some calcs @ stuff.

    - this thing could expand into something really nice & useful if written properly.

    I need the program to do my costings for the laser and I am sure that many other companies need the same for their lasers and other machines.

    Contact me on adrian_hill@mweb.co.za if you're keen.

    Any reason you want it on MySQL? Most have moved to M1crosoft SQL now it's free.

    True. Delphi & Sql Server make for a nice combination.

    We're using something like this already (Print Audit), it saves to our MS-SQL server. It's not free, but if you're willing to pay someone to build one for you - you'd probably have paid a whole lot more.

    About using MS-SQL, yes that is the trend ... whether it's good / bad is a bit of a discussion on its own. We are using MS-SQL ourselves, but due to all the hassles we have with MS's servers I'd say try your absolute utmost to rather use a Linux server (i.e. MS-SQL is out the door). We were using a Linux server prior to us HAVING to move to MS-SQL, we never had so much problems with network speeds, connection & access disasters, constant IP conflicts from the auto-assigned DHCP (WTF????). Now I want to pull what's left of my hair out at least twice a day, on the Linux it was extremely strange to have to "fix" something in 6 months.

    Only the express version is free, and limited. You still need to pay for Windows server license (R5k+++, depending on other needs) whereas Linux server & MySQL is totally free MySQL / PHP developers are also more than often cheaper than MS developers.

    Adrian, did you get someone todo this for you?
