The grey weather today makes it a good day to have some quality time behind the computer screen. The first thing I decided to do today was upgrade my ports tinderbox to the latest release candidate (2.2.0rc5) of the MarcusCom tinderbox software. It was quite a smooth upgrade except for a minor issue that there was only an SQL script for PostgreSQL for the version I was running and not for MySQL, which is what I use, so I had to write one.
It’s been quite a while since I’ve really looked at MySQL code and I must admit that I’m amazed of how many new features they have added. Several years ago, I started using PostgreSQL and once you use things like foreign key constraints, you never look back. I’m glad to see that MySQL added those features as well.
