SQL Comment from rudy.ca 2004 Apr 26

rudy sent me a comment about my MySQL post saying:

VARCHAR(200) is **not** very silly

TEXT has performance issues

of course, if you were planning on regularly inserting comments that exceed 200, then yeah, some kind of larger datatype would be required

so in that light, VARCHAR(200) is a wee bit sillier than VARCHAR(255)

;o)

Thanks Rudy!
