any. just accept the fact that count(*) is *always* slow.

use triggers to store counts if you are using them all of the time.

also, i have two simple requests:
1. try to write to 1 mailing list. and not send the same question to all
lists you can find.
2. please try to avoid using workds like "lakh" or "crore" in your
mails.

i assume they mean something in your country of origin, but as far as i
know this is not english.

regards,

depesz
