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.
