For a second there I thought Blogger might be really hosed as I wasn’t offered the chance to edit Axodys as usual. Logging out and then back in seems to have fixed that problem.
I’m finally getting sleepy enough to go to bed. I tried earlier, but as is sometimes the case I just wasn’t quite tired enough to fall asleep. I’m going to have to look at this sleep related article later today.
MySQL’s built in security is a little convoluted. Not overly so, but just enough to be bothersome when you’re new to the system and trying to remotely access a database. At least I’ve successfully added a user that works locally.
Installing MySQL went a lot more smoothly than I expected. Now I just need to go home and pull out my copy of so I can familiarize myself with its workings. Cool. Databases are fun.
Incidentally, the LinuxPPC server that I’ve been running at work (and that I just installed MySQL on) actually has an uptime of 29 days right now. Sure, that’s small potatoes to a lot of people (and servers), but it’s a significant improvement over my initial experiences with LinuxPPC on that particular box. Shutting down Gnome and X-Windows seem to have made all the difference in the world (and freed up some memory as well).
