Commenting on Hotmail will now auto-magically delete email for you

tcr! tcr! · Oct 3, 2011 at 7:53 pm

That might be a little bit of "sensationalism" in the headline. I doubt if they'll just auto-magically turn it on and set the dial to delete after 3 days.

But then thought differently. Briefly.

Commenting on Dear Facebook, Machine Learning Will Always Fail

I'm not sure what exactly "more" would entail though. It makes me think they're hiding something that I might want to see. That's why I like to hide or not to hide settings.

If this actually worked, M.’s views on marshmallows would have been at the top of the page; Facebook doesn’t have a clue what I want to read. I’ve always preferred the chronological order. I think I like the new “more of this person, less of that person” settings though.

Hell yeah.. All weather tiger machine. I never thought about them for rec use but they'd be mighty fine.

I'm totally going to nab one of those delivery trucks when they all go up for auction. They're hot.

A new paint job would be in order, though… Tiger stripes!

I considered it briefly.

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?

tcr! tcr! · Aug 27, 2011 at 7:11 am

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


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

Anonymous · Aug 27, 2011 at 12:56 am

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.
