My Web host does not permit many SQL databases and I imagine many others
don't. Do you host it all on a PC at home?

That's an odd question. It depends on the load, i.e. how much traffic
and how much computation is required.

I think I should point out that it's not only the hardware you use, but
also the network it's in that counts.

It's definitely possible to have as many tables as you like lying
around. You can start with the 40 and just upgrade the hardware when it
gets too slow.

Nothing I can suggest, but I think it's an excellent idea.
