Sandbox revisited

This really looks to be a great tool for use in development and testing. I find the only shortcoming is that it is written in perl and there for is impossible for me to love whole heartedly. I kid, but with great OO interpreted languages around why do people still use perl?

Congratulations Baron Schwartz

This guy loves MySQL performance. Anyone who knows me knows that I am not easily impressed by even myself let alone anyone else. I have to say I am impressed with his depth of knowledge and the quality of his presentation. I am skeptical of the Maatkit still. The “visual explain” demonstration provided output that, to me, looked less clear than an explain. Now to give Baron the benefit of the doubt, I have been reading EXPLAIN output for many many moons so it may just be that I have Stockholm syndrome. Anyway, Baron knows his stuff and I recommend him as a strong resource, I know I will be pestering him with questions in the days to come.

Way to go Baron!

MySQL Proxy is pretty cool! We got to see Guissepe’s examples to use mysql proxy to display an image, open an external application and even play a copy of Beowolf (labeled “cd1″). Perhaps he has a downloaded copy from a legal service that breaks movies up into cds… lets just give him the benefit of the doubt. Anyway, his stuff from the conference tutorial is here:

more to come…

Now this is a movie I want to see!
