    Hmmm..

    Not really, it was about human rights database, what i needed was db design standards such as proper naming conventions of tables, columns, indexes etc., good and bad primary key candidates, when to use blobs, when to use date, time or datetime data types etc etc... general design standards like that. But thanks for the help Manish, any other help is still very much welcome

    Check out the databases from Birdstep Technology. They offer a line of databases based upon the network model. This design offers blindingly fast speed along with a small footprint, two things generally lacking in relational databases. You can find info about them at www.birdstep.com.
