Chacham's Journal: Bug: UDB crashes 2

Journal by Chacham

UDB 8.1.2 maybe? Anyway, after connecting, i can consistently crash it in one of two or three ways (so far). That is, the box stays up, but the DB goes down, and a DB restart brings it up in an inconsistent state.

Easiest is a few words long, but technically incorrect.

      Well, really cool stuff done. Basic stuff is easy, and the newsgroups are an excellent resource.

      That is most certainly not true. The standard (albeit Java) tools are good for most tasks.

      And MySQL isn't a database. No transactions, no structure, no nothing. Great for qick 'n dirty programmers though.

Real programmers don't bring brown-bag lunches. If the vending machine doesn't sell it, they don't eat it. Vending machines don't sell quiche.
