Snippet: Nooo!!!!!

September 17th, 2003 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

Nooo!!!! 200,000 MySQL inserts comprising of over 2.16Gb of data won’t work because there’s a single comma missing in the SQL insert statement in every single row… Nooo! I just hope I can rescue the data with a Perl regexp or else I’ll have to wipe out the last 3.5days of work and processing (that’s 24/7 processing by the way: in the last ten days, I’ve downloaded over 5.3Gb of data and already made over 20,190,979 MySQL inserts – and I’ve still got all the above to do: working on project DBC is a lot harder than first expected!)

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
