It’s time again for another edition of the weekly review of database blogs, Log Buffer. Since it was a big week for SQL Server, let’s start there, shall we?
Proprietary products from Apple, such as the iPhone and Mac OS X operating system, work well enough that open source aficionados are having internal ethical dilemmas about owning them. I am not a developer, however I have modified some open source code in my time. I even have something to show for it — in the left-hand menu of Nagios, the text box where you can enter in a host name, hit “Enter” and go immediately to that host’s page was my patch. I often found myself wanting to go to a specific host as fast as possible. So, I patched my own version, then submitted it onward, thinking it might do some good.
If you work with databases long enough, you run into a certain problem. You have a mysqldump file* of a table or a database, and you need to import it into your new database. However, you need to change something in the file first. Well, one simple solution is to use the sed tool to modify the file. Sed actually stands for “stream editor”. The vi editor would be considered a static editor in that it loads all of the file into memory at once. If you run out of memory, you are out of luck.
I’m pleased to announce that there will be the formal launch of Pythian Europe at the premises of the Canadian Embassy in Prague on Wednesday the 6th of August from 17:00 to 18:30. This historic event will be announced by Mrs. Sameena Qureshi, Trade Counsellor, Embassy of Canada; and Paul Vallee, President and Founder, The Pythian Group. Present will be various members from the press (IT and Business), as well as representatives from Oracle and Sun Microsystems, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Prague, and many more. We will prepare some unusual and very tasty snacks and refreshments.
I am traveling to Europe next week to brief major prospects in Germany (Daimler, MAN) as well as to attend to administrative matters at Pythian Europe in Prague and would love to meet any readers of this blog during this trip!
Welcome to the 108th edition of Log Buffer, the weekly review of database blogs.
So, the Malta MySQL User Group has had its first ever meet-up today, and it was a success! he evening proceeded with a introduction of ourselves, our interest in MySQL, and mainly talk about weird bugs that we had encountered during our careers. Oh, we also discussed Kickfire a bit, and it does indeed sound like a very interesting product, which I’d love to try out one day. Overall, I am very satisfied with this meeting and the turnout.
I recently needed to set up multiple MySQL servers on a test computer to simulate a master-slave setup. I had never done this before, so I think it might be useful for others if I documented what occurred.
How does a wild-mannered MySQL DBA like me get to speak at an Oracle conference? Well, after I received the MySQL Community Award two years in a row, Dan Norris contacted me, and encouraged me to submit a proposal with him on how to contribute to the community.
The MySQL Community version is different in theory from the Enterprise version in relation to the following points….
