The statistics database today exceeded four million (billion that is for you Americans) records. This is only the statistics DB, without the forum and support databases.

All databases combined have a total of almost ten million records.

Thought I share this with you all

The statistics DB is 2.6GB and growing with about 75~100MB a day.

All support DB's are about 2.5GB together.

four million (billion that is for you Americans)

So which is it? A million is the same the world over. It's only when you get to 1000 million that an ambiguity can arise over the use of the term 'billion'.

It's still a huge database though!

Well, I'm a far away from the US here. Thought they use billion for million.

It's confusion anyway, gallons, miles, pounds.....

Ouch! but I'm only tracking the members of my own team. More of an experiment in how to make it work really...


A million is always 10^6. In much of Europe, a billion was traditionally 10^12 (a million million), while in the US a billion is 10^9 (a thousand million). The European version always made more sense to me anyway, although in the UK at least, billion is now commonly used to mean 10^9.
