I just can't get MySQL to not suck. I was playing with PostgreSQL the other day, and that sucks in many respects as well. I really wish I could afford Oracle. Real RDBMSes kick ass. Even MS-SQL kicks ass, too, having used that at Intel extensively.

Goal: write some intelligent monitoring/fixing scripts to watch livejournal while I go to the beach tonight. I don't have digital cellphone service out there, hence no text messaging. I'll be able to login from my dad's laptop, but I don't really want to do that.

MySQL vs. PostgreSQL

Recently saw an article mentioned on Slashdot that had a comparison of MySQL vs. PostgreSQL. They both seem to have advantages and disadvantages but neither comes close to the power offered by SQL Server or Oracle. The most interesting point was that MySQL can only safely handle about 50 connections at a time whereas SQL Server can handle about 500,000 I think... Anyway, just thought you would be interested:
