I called you an idiot, because in your previous and current message you 
called me too.

I know that splitting information across tables and maintain foreign 
keys for retain relationships between them is a necessary thing but in 
my case i only just an extra pieces of information to eb associated with 
my visitor, a possible file download.

and i have decided just to add an extra colum to the existing 'visitors' 
database and this is adequate.

I still don't know why you push me to create an extra table instead.

It may seem that i'm clue resistant sometimes and i'm but this is not 
because out of arogance but as a result of failign to under
