comment What is a buffered write scheme?
thanks again. Sorry to drag this out a bit, but I want to get a handle on it. So "a buffer write scheme" doesn't have to be implemented in some specific system, or specific way; it's just a method of doing something, whether it's at the DB level, application level, etc... ?

comment What is a buffered write scheme?
Thanks! When you say a whole bunch of writes, do you mean a bunch of SQL statements? Or just data getting persisted in memory until some function writes it to the database? If so, where would one persist visit data to protect from abuse, as discussed in my last point... ?

comment Storing credit card information: Looking for a creative solution
@Rein Henrichs, so basically I can't do business... The banks here haven't got a clue what a merchant account is (Brazil). I already visited several of them and the concept doesn't exist in their lexicon. Every time I've explained my need they've muttered some nonsense with a bemused look on their face. It's quite tragic, in fact! I can't use PayPal either because users can cancel their subscription without returning their good and I need security against such a scenario.

@Rein Henrichs, the server is on shared hosting. Shouldn't my provider be PCI compliant?

@Devin, thank you. Alas neither authorize.net nor braintree offer their services to international customers (save for a $3 million volume)!

@Anomie, how would you handle recurrent billing without storing the CVV? I'm operating in an underdeveloped market and we can't afford available solutions.
