You could be forgiven for thinking that I am paid to merely attend but I do actually do somework sometimes.

Memory Fails Me

Every now and again I have cause to install MySQL. I wish I didn’t but, apparently, you can’t always get what you want. I try to make the process as painless as possible and get phpMyAdmin up and running almost immediately but always stumble on the creation of PMA specific tables as they are the only bit that need to be done from the mysql>| command line (yuk).

So I inevitably end up searching the MySQL help for how to do this. Well, no longer will I travail so for here they are.


I think I may have just come up with something for me to do to a) do some actual work around here and b) further my knowledge of web standards.

One of our academics has a Journal web site that is desperately out-of-date web standards wise. It’s a relatively small site (compared to the main site I work on) and will allow a degree of freedom design-wise that is not true for my main site.
