Oh yummy mysql

I am a journalist. . . I am a journalist. . . I am a journalist, so what am I doing figuring out mysql databases courtesy of Frederick - a genius coder. Every journalist on the web should have a friend like Fred. So I figured out with his help what the class selector was fr the css code. Fred got into the database and a few cranks, spanners dropping to the floor, and then presto. Now I'm under the bonnet.

Right that's it. I have got a piece to write on young offenders. I am a journalist. . I am a journ-acoder . . . I am an encoder.

Beats me whatever it is that works in this wierd and wonderful time

Welcome to the world of being a jack of all trades, master of them all (or most of them anyways).

I only know enough Mysql to be dangerous. But I have developed locally on a separate linux box running mysql and remotely administered it through remote desktop (VNC) and the Windows version of MySQL Administrator 1.1

Oh the joys of doing more...

Cheers mate!
