Okay, thanks guys, that explains the difference and shows me there are situations where using one or the other can have an impact; such as the backend settings using a socket as opposed to tcp/ip if you change the server name to localhost. (y)

I'll leave it at locahost for the front end and 127.0.0.1 for the back end (since I don't need to micro-optimise). :)

Cheers,
Shaun :D
