GET/POST size of data limit?

I've built a OutOfOffice calendar in PHP. Each month is a standalone table,
the first column being the person's name. Then N cells, one for each day of
the month. And I have 2 Calendars: a nice looking read-only and a working
calendar where each "day" is "<input name=$empid[$e]x$doy type=text size=1..."
that allows a supervisor to edit V(aca), S(ick) etc. and then save to a MySql
DB. It was working fine until I was asked to add 9 new names (2 grps became 1)
and now 3 months of GET or POST causes the Submit button to hang. If I do
only 1 month it works. So...

The question: Is there a limit to GET/POST? (I assume the ans is yes) Then
can I change it? or get around it?

The HTTP protocol does not place any a priori limit on the length of
a URI. Servers must be able to handle the URI of any resource they
serve, and SHOULD be able to handle URIs of unbounded length if they
provide GET-based forms that could generate such URIs. A server
SHOULD return 414 (Request-URI too long) status if a URI is longer
than the server can handle (see section 10.4.15).

Note: Servers ought to be cautious about depending on URI lengths
above 255 bytes, because some older client or proxy
implementations might not properly support these lengths.

And I think the POST limit is whatever is configured in php.ini (8M by
If your forms are GET-based try switching to POST.
