    I have noticed alot of database errors today when I try to read some of the posts here.. I'm assuming its a server load issue?

    Looks like it's time to move up to MS Access!

    (Yes, I'm kidding!)

    I thought they should go to a flatfile. Maybe a csv?? :)

    "Maybe a csv??"

    Would make it easier to back up.

    Yep, easier and smaller.

    And it would be easier to import in Excel to calculate how may "e"'s are in your posts and stuff. Makes stats alot easier. I'd like to know how may people have the used the puctuation "~" in my posts. That would be much easier to do offline.

    CSV's rule!

    But imagine the support queries if we moved WP to it:

    "What does csv stand for?" (A dozen a day at least.)

    "Can I run WordPress off tab-delimited?"

    "I can't seem to post unless my csv is set to 777 on permissions. Is this secure?"

    "I keep seeing people recommending back up of the csv file. How do I do that?"

    "I deleted the wp.csv file from my installation, and now I don't see any of my posts. Did I need that file?"

    Sounds like you we might open a complete can of worms. I think we better leave well enough alone.

    But just in case, I am researching my answer to: "I opened my wp.csv with excel and then saved it, now it doesn't work. What do I do with the wp.csv.xls file to get it working now?"

    I updated the database connection logic to try and work around this random problem, I'm sorry about this.
