I'll chalk this up to sleeplesness. <p> Try </p><p> <code> SELECT * FROM sometable LIMIT 1 LIMIT 2; </code> </p><p> That's supposed to be legal in mysql, as well as it's own custom equivalent </p><p> <code> SELECT * FROM sometable LIMIT 2,1; </code> </p><p> but mysql BARFS on the first one as illegal syntaxt. </p><p> I can't believe my eyes (got mysql4 alpha, and mysql3.2 something). </p><p> I'm getting 4.0 Gamma right now to try it there.</p> podmaster 2002-12-25T02:40:07+00:00 journal Bizzare Beeps http://use.perl.org/~podmaster/journal/8215?from=rss Mon Oct 7 13:53:28 2002 GMT <p> 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. </p><p> Most other key combinations didn't do any beeping. </p><p> Through further testing with the help of fellow monks (and [katgirl] -- DellPC), I have come to find that I am not alone. </p><p> [PixelRat] chimed in with "my computer actually reboots when i press ctrl, alt + delete (and it beeps!)" </p><p> [dada] asked if it was the same beep as produced by print chr(7) -- bell </p><p> It was not.
