Firstly, let me say that I have zero experience with database, servers, etc. Now that I have prefaced this long question with that tidbit let me ask the most basic questions. What is the difference between MySQL and MS SQL? I think they do the same thing but I'm not sure of their differences.
Next and this requires some explanation so bare with me. Recently, I was elected to update my school club's website. I had said yes despite my little knowledge of HTML but I do understand the basics of programming. One of the tasks I was asked to look into automatically inserting people's registration into the gmail address book. Currently, one of the executives have to manually input all of the names.
1. Is it possible to have a script automatically input people's information into the google's address book?
2. Would using an SQL database useful / make my job easier? It's okay if it doesn't go into the address book. Just something that will hold people's information and the data is easy to retrieve.
3. Can you create a new database on my local machine and upload it to the internet?
Thanks for the help. Let me know if I was too vague or confusing.
