Commenting on Jack's Split Lip or Matthew Fox Gets Whooped

have you considered the possibility she said he punched her there so that she didn't have to show her bruises because THERE ARE NO SUCH BRUISES?
I'm sure she's lying


Commenting on MySQL Date/Time fields vs Integers

Thanks for the tip! I didn't know that.


Commenting on MySQL Date/Time fields vs Integers

Brandon Godwin · Aug 30, 2011 at 10:51 pm

Since MySQL 5 I believe, the TIMESTAMP data type is converted to UTC when it's stored and converted back into the timezone of the server or connection set timezone when retrieved. Storing the date and time as a TIMESTAMP allows you to perform date operations in the query, such as adding or subtracting time from it for a WHERE clause.

However, make sure you use TIMESTAMP and not DATETIME for this. DATETIME does not handle the timezone conversion.


Commenting on A-Z, 0-9 Only for Passwords?

See, I'm not a database guy either. Maybe they should be tinyblobs instead.

It shouldn't be a varchar(255) in order to store "255 characters password" it should be a FIXED char and use a proper hashing method.

This means they probably store passwords in plain text, and that's probably just one of the major security faults in their system, I bet ya!

> I know my choices took a lot of thought

This could be why I've never gotten any real ones, I would never be able to make up my mind.

Those are nice tatts.

I know my choices took a lot of thought. My art is definitely worthy of staying with me forever. The whole process of getting the work done is quite addictive.

BEHOLD THE POWER OF CORNIFY.

That would definitely improve the emails that come from our corporate office. As it is, I have to go and cornify our company website instead. The President's Message was greatly improved when it became the Lovely President's Message.

I truly need a Cornify button for my email client. That would make my work orders all the more merrier.

I have to say, the Cornify button is the finest addition I've ever made to my browser.

Never mind.. After another look at your comment, I see where you're coming from.


Commenting on About Firefox Sans Version Number

tcr! tcr! · Aug 17, 2011 at 4:30 pm

Not buying what? My reasoning for keeping it or Mozilla's for removing it?


Commenting on About Firefox Sans Version Number

Tony_M · Aug 17, 2011 at 4:26 pm

Hrmm… not buying it. By that reasoning, why not just get rid of "About Firefox" altogether? Surely we don't need to know any of that other stuff either.


Commenting on Poking Fun at HP's TouchPad

tcr! tcr! · Aug 13, 2011 at 8:02 pm

I think it's because I have a fondness for webOS, it's a good platform and the Apple pundits tend to hit it with just as hard as they do Android.

And I don't think this hitting is justified. Android, its malware and goofy "open source" model have plenty of lashings coming. I'm not sure that this is true for webOS and the TouchPad.

Often times the people in love with the iOS devices seem to go out of their way to knock down anything that might threaten Apple's dominance in the market.

Plenty of people are bashed here on tcrbang.com of course, but I think these are all legitimate bashing.

Maybe HP had it coming from Marco. I don't know. Marco seems like a fair person in his writings and the tone of his write-up just struck me as abrasive.

I'm with you, T.

Maybe you can fire NPP.org back up. My new job affords me a lot of free time, & I'm very often VERY bored at work. I could help you admin the site if you don't have the time.



But wait!!

I have to tell you about my diaries podcast. Again. Because it’s that good. 🎙 Listen now →
