my morning [Jun. 18th, 2000|03:03 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
didn't finish cleaning up in time before my mom got back ... she was pissed. house was a mess. had to go outside to clean some it and my allergies are killing me ... can't find my Claritin. then moved all my crap from the furnace room into my real room, now that most my relatives are gone. anyway, been working on job stuff ... learning/installing Postgres and PHP, two things I should've learned awhile ago but never had a reason to.

Re: mySQL

What's wrong with mySQL? It's pretty powerful as compared to like SQL Server right? You use mySQL for this site?

Re: mySQL

Brad was stressing to us that the database-consistancy issues (usually implemented with server-side database procedures) simply aren't addressed at all by MySQL. (But I'm open for alternative answers. :-) It seems to be a direct tradeoff of functionality for speed. Your thoughts?

Re: mySQL

It's decent, but it doesn't do all the cool things that real RDBMSes do, like foreign keys and constraints and support languages inside the database...
