    [web] SQL server performance

    You didn't mention what language you will be developing with. If your using PHP (or python) I'd suggest using ADODB (http://adodb.sourceforge.net) so you can support a wide variety of databases. As far as mysql is concerned, Ra is correct. mysql is complete and utter shit. Horribly inadequate implementation of the sql standard. I think foreign keys were just recently added. Hopefully as soon as Postgresql 8.0 is released mysql will go the way of the dodo. The only thing mysql has on Postgres currently is that it runs on windows and linux. Postgresql 7.x runs of the various flavors of linux/unix. 8.0 will add support for windows. Personally I think postgres is the best. Its free, definitely an enterprise-class RDBS, and it is getting better all the time. But like I said, if you use PHP + ADODB you will be afforded awesome flexibility. Imagine being able to support MySQL, PostgreSQL, Interbase, Firebird, Informix, Oracle, MS SQL, Foxpro, Access, ADO, Sybase, FrontBase, DB2, SAP DB, SQLite, Netezza, LDAP, and generic ODBC, ODBTP.

    Protest T-shirt gets couple booted on July 4th

    I'm totally amazed that anyone is defending the removal of these people for simply wearing shirts which are anti-bush(*cough* fisheye *cough*). From the article we can assume that they were removed simply for wearing these shirts -- not for creating outbursts before/during the speech or other such truly disruptive actions. This is totally in line with Bush's carefully crafted media image which his handlers are masters at shaping and protecting. Ever notice how every single time he speaks there is a huge backdrop with a message (which is usually totally at odds with his actions) plastered all over it such as "Ensuring Corporate Responsibility" or some other nonsense. I fucking hate this president with a passion. If he ever speaks anywhere were I can attend I'll be sure to show up with some anti-bush shirt just to get kicked out and experience this bullshit first hand. This type of thing makes me absolutely sick to my stomache. The real nightmare will begin in November if he finds a way to hold on to power and then doesn't have to worry about _trying_ to look good for another re-election. ATS
