MYSQL DOCUMENTATION ON SELECT SYNTAXT IS FALSE

[ #9620 ]
update: It's been a little while, and I don't recall where I got the idea that LIMIT 1 LIMIT 2 is valid syntaxt, but it's not. I'll chalk this up to sleeplesness.

Try

SELECT * FROM sometable LIMIT 1 LIMIT 2;

That's supposed to be legal in mysql, as well as it's own custom equivalent

SELECT * FROM sometable LIMIT 2,1;

but mysql BARFS on the first one as illegal syntaxt.

I can't believe my eyes (got mysql4 alpha, and mysql3.2 something).

I'm getting 4.0 Gamma right now to try it there.

Bizzare Beeps

[ #8215 ]
Mon Oct 7 13:53:28 2002 GMT

Out of impatience (and maybe frustration), I podmaster, held down the keys DJK simultaneously on my Microsoft Natural Keyboard whilst running Win2000 and was confronted with a BEEP every half a second or so (probably less) and lasting about as much.

Most other key combinations didn't do any beeping.

Through further testing with the help of fellow monks (and [katgirl] -- DellPC), I have come to find that I am not alone.

[PixelRat] chimed in with "my computer actually reboots when i press ctrl, alt + delete (and it beeps!)"

[dada] asked if it was the same beep as produced by print chr(7) -- bell

It was not. The bell is high pitch and long, while this one is low pitch and short.

Here is a list of keys which have beeped for me ;)

A JOURNAL?!??!?

[ #7285 ]
Who keeps a journal?

What kind of man keeps a journal?

Who has time to keep a yournal .... in text that is.
I get tired of typing. Speech-to-text folks, it's a MIRACLE (if you need text ~ audio works for me just fine )
