If the site got bigger, probably mysql. To start off, we can use a nice text database
format called SDS from psp project which relies on no external database, and is great
for starter sites who think they need a real database but not sure they want to
commit to one. It as full capabilities to export to SQL later if the site gets bigger
:) I guess they call this "scaling" and "backwards/forwards compatibility".

As for you going to do the development in PHP? Instead, I would force you to help me
in Pascal :)
And then I would go about changing your email signature to this:

Ronald Weidner
PHP/PSP Software developer for hire.

And mine to this:

Lars (L505)
PHP/PSP Software developer for hire.

Hit two birds with one stone:
 FPC gaming + FPC website development

instead of
 FPC gaming + PHP website development
