Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

vi but only because...

I'm using vi but only because it's not worth the hassel of attempting to get a better editor installed in the place I work (too much red tape).

Talk like that could touch a nerve. What editor would you prefer should "red tape" not be an issue?

Aw c'mon.. no ed?
Seriously, though. I mostly use Vim for.. well.. everything, and I use ed to look cool in front of my *nix friends. Yup, I can make ed say things other than "?" Smilie

Learning vi is a *huge* investment, and will be an invaluable skill to add to your Unix skillset....

BTW for those who are unsure - vi is pronounced Vee Eye. We've got people at work who pronounce it "Vie" and that is definitely not the done thing Smilie How we snigger Smilie

A beautiful ex-girlfriend of mine (should have married her!), at my prodding years ago, wrote her entire masters thesis in VI. When she graduated from her University she landed a nice paying UNIX job at Lycos.De because, of her great UNIX/VI skills. VI pays $$$ !!!! Smilie

True. And once you've managed to press more than 15 keys simultanuously you can unleash its power to the full extent.

Escape Meta Alt Control Shift ;-))

I prefer editors one can use without being a professional pianist.
