Many years ago, I recall being told that you should choose Text Field Sizes in certain increments for performance, but I don't remember the formula to use...

It had something to do with matching the Field Size with how the Database stores things on the back end, and was multiples of something...

So, as far as MySQL and VARCHAR() goes, is there such a formula?

For example, would VARCHAR(64) be better than VARCHAR(59) of VARCHAR(65)?

Thanks,
