Ruby DBI contrib

[ #6684 ]
Michael Neumann has officially added my DBRC class to his DBI module. It's just a bit of obfuscation to avoid hard coding passwords for DBI connections. It's modelled mostly on the way the .netrc file works and it was Perl's Net::Netrc module that inspired me.

In other news, my dad sent me a pic of my mom's fixator. Yikes! It looks like a Borg implant or something. I had to delete it - very gross.

  • We use DBIx::Password for Slash. You hardcode the details of the connection in the module itself, which you can then set permissions on however you'd like, and then you can access the "virtual user" from any code that has permission to use the module.
