MySQL Performance Blog: COUNT(*) vs COUNT(col)

Looking at how people are using COUNT(*) and COUNT(col) it looks like most of them think they are synonyms and just using what they happen to like, while there is substantial difference in performance and even query result

Can anyone help me with this one? Few days ago my firefox started rendering this red garbage on almost every page, very randomly. Have no idea why and how.

Lexmark driver cannot detect my CPU speed (probably due to Speedstep downclocking it) and thinks my 1.5 GHz Thinkpad T40 is too old for printing.

UPDATE This is a bug in Windows XP, what you have to do is shut down your computer and power it on with power cable connected and then retry the installation.

Here is the autohotkey script that I've been using for some time now and that will make your your thinkpad keyboard more useful. It does three things:

1) It will map browser back and forward keys to page up/down, and when you're holding control to home/end keys. This is really handy when you're navigating text/editing.

2) Map Windows-Menu key to Ctrl-W which is almost universally mapped to close tab/window

3) It will produce a beep when you push down Fn key. After I first got my thinkpad I used to mistake Fn and Ctrl (Fn being placed leftmost). This is what'll help you learn where the Ctrl is ;-)
After updating rubygems on ubuntu with gem update --system, you'll probably encounter the following error:

/usr/bin/gem:23: uninitialized constant Gem::GemRunner (NameError)
This should solve it:
cp /usr/bin/gem1.8 /usr/bin/gem

Things about GNOME that Suck

Did you know that GNOME doesn't remember the last position of a window, so you'll have to move your gnome-terminal to your favorite corner each time you start it.

Please, let's reimplement this in ruby and give it a better name so that you can actually find related things in google. I really hate it.

I'm unable to find this anywhere online so I'm posting it here as I just threw the CD away when I was moving to my new place (CDs are really thing of the past).

After lots of iteration, I'm starting tagdo from the scratch.

It turned out that what I really want is a simple outliner that will understand lots of semantics.

I'm now using JSON to pass objects between client and server and I am rendering everything in JS, so no more expensive roundtrips just to get the html for the edit form. Feels veeery responsive.

Give it a month or two until something usable comes out.


$a = array(1,2,3);
$b = array(1,2,3);
echo empty(array_diff($a,$b));
will give you Fatal error: Can't use function return value in write context in test.php on line 5 You'll have to write this instead:
$a = array(1,2,3);
$b = array(1,2,3);
$r = array_diff($a,$b);
echo empty($r); // returns 1
