Great! Thanks guys. I'd never heard of MariaDB (I haven't touched programming in years) and I'm going to look into it. And I'm ordering another RPi today to install it on (for playing and learning).
MariaDB is a fork of MySQL that was started after Oracle bought MySQL. As I understand it, there is much more active development work taking place on MariaDB than on MySQL. The general interfaces are the same, though that souldn't be an issue to some new to either DBMS.
And isn't it cute that you are getting your second Pi..
I think I have somewhere upwards of 30...or should that be 40? In either case, once the Pi4B shows up in a year of two, that'll probably grow by another 10 or so.
