For a long time I was a bit of a MySQL bigot. I preferred to use PostgreSQL because it had some more advanced support built in for things like transactions. Well, the conversion back to MySQL has been pretty nice. I just found out about MySQL Control Center which is a nifty GUI by the MySQL people for administering databases. Although I know SQL, the GUI makes it easy to do simple things. This is a blessing and probably will result in me using more database driven stuff in the future.
