Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

Here I am, back at work. I'd post a picture of my cube, except it's pretty much the exact same as before, so just imagine that one.

This is Sparta!

I have nothing to say about the subject of this particular post, wherein I describe the fact that I have very little to say about the post.

We've moved over to a new server. You should notice no difference, except the website address no longer redirects to beardedchild.com. We've got separate web space just for this site now. Yay. We moved to Dreamhost, which is a really great host, whose 487th sale since 500,000 will be in 3 days. Seriously.

Actually, I just read this blog post on their website touting how to be a famous blogger. Not that I really blog about anything terribly interesting. But one tip was to make lots of crazy, controversial predictions. That one up there was my first. You know what's next? I'll give you a hint. It involves Jesus, unwed mothers, and a donkey, and not in the way you're thinking.


I also tracked down why no categories were showing and "fixed" it. Now you can choose to view posts by category (which is not useful yet).


I also wrote this handy batch file for those of use not so well versed in the intricacies of MySQL database copying. Don't need access to the binary files or anything. Here's a windows batch file that will copy all databases (that a certain user can see) from one server to another, if the destination user has necessary permissions:

(Currently set up to copy from mysql.mhost.com to the current machine, which is what I do to get copies of the databases onto my machine for testing purposes with actual data.)

SET SOURCE_HOST=mysql.myhost.com
@echo off
SET DEST_HOST=localhost
SET DEST_PASS=root_pass
echo Mirroring databases. Please stand by . . .
mysqldump -u %SOURCE_USER% -h %SOURCE_HOST% -p%SOURCE_PASS% --all-databases | mysql -u %DEST_USER% -h %DEST_HOST% -p%DEST_PASS%

Why, back in my day, I was a batch fiend! Who needs compilers? You could write your own operating system in batch files and VBScripts if they didn't both require huge amounts of overhead and an operating system to run.
