Dustin writes "What would you consider to be the best practice to use an unsigned 32-bit integer? For our application we need several 32-bit unsigned integers and I would hate to use a bigint just for a 32-bit field. Even a binary(4) require a 4 byte overhead which is just as bad as a bigint (8 bytes of storage). Thanks for your help.

Why can't you use SIGNED 32-bit integer?
Are you doing some bit operations?
