Speaking of PHP and the mySQL database language, I just spent the past 
weekend transferring a web client over to a new host, which included moving 
the forums.  :)

You can write CGI-BIN applications with just about any language... Perl, C, 
C++, HLA, etc.  I suppose any kind of database accessing you do will be up 
to your program unless there's a way to send mySQL queries from the CGI.

I'm planning on beefing up the coco3.com web site over time with more 
interactive features.  A search-FAQ sounds real nice, where you could ask 
your own question concerning the CoCo and get answers.
