True...but a relational database isn't really needed, a flat file will do fine for a good while.
I have several projects with 50000+ lines of code in them, they only come to to about 200 KB's...you would have to buy 100's or 1000's of things and play even more games till it would become a hassle.
Anyway we wont have, i should think reveries have specialised servers ready to take out data and keep it safe
