Oh, and the ability to organize opportunities by date (in the database there's a startdate and enddate field, which theoretically would be useful). Oh, and the ability to configure skills, so that volunteers can filter by skills they offer.
That last one would be _so_ much easier if mySQL supported views. Since it _doesn't_ however, I'm going to have to whinge about it, and remind myself to _never use mySQL again_. If I had the money, I'd so get an oracle license- Oracle kicks _ass_. Worst case though, I'm going to take postgres for a spin- it can't be worse than mySQL. mySQL has less features than _Access_ for chrissakes!
