There's an article in the Dr. Dobb's journal this month addressing that
exact problem. Hope to find some time to read it and maybe get a summary up!

thanx for the code.

That's what I currently have more or less.
My questions was really - does it make sense to create a game object
for every result returned from a sql query ?

I'm currently leaning towards no - despite what charles said - especialy
for PHP (though Java might be a different story).

Any more thoughts about helping me do the work for StationPlay or maybe
even starting vgsp.com from scratch with me -
