rails newbie asking another question

i think i've read somewhere lots of sql queries would slow things down.
how slow are we talking about? in terms of seconds i guess. i would
also assume that the size of the db would come into account as well as
the amount of users querying the db?

does the speed come to a point where it's really unbearable?

Depends how slow your queries are :slight_smile: This is really a 'how long is a
piece of string' type question. Just bear in mind that every database
access has its cost (even say a select from a one row table - you've
still got the latency of the round trip).
