For some kids, their questions could be answered with a simple yes or no," he says. "For Mark, if he asked for something, yes by itself would work, but no required much more. If you were going to say no to him, you had better be prepared with a strong argument backed by facts, experiences...

Sounds about right. You could probably use a subquery to get the largest room number, but there's a lot of ways that could break if rooms were removed or something. [code=sql]SELECT date_booked, COUNT(room_id) AS rooms_booked FROM bookings WHERE rooms_booked = (SELECT room_id FROM rooms ORDER BY roo...

If a room can't be booked more than once in the same day, something like this should work.

SQL Code: [ Select ]
SELECT date_booked, COUNT(room_id) AS rooms_booked
FROM bookings
WHERE rooms_booked = 8
GROUP BY date_booked;
  1. SELECT date_booked, COUNT(room_id) AS rooms_booked
  2. FROM bookings
  3. WHERE rooms_booked = 8
  4. GROUP BY date_booked;

I had a look around using the phrase you keep repeating and though I did find one result that looked promising at first, it all looks like snake oil to me when I read their EULA.

That's pretty slick Spoof. :D I gave it a whirl with bitwise operators, but didn't get anywhere with them.

I seem to remember a MySQL optimization article published by the MySQL site itself that says DISTINCT and GROUP BY are usually related and that you should try to use GROUP BY in favor of DISTINCT whenever you can.

Although a lot of modern browsers support :hover for elements other than the <a> element, you'll still want to track the hover of the <a> element because it's more reliable. If your classnames are unique to these elements, you can target those spans with this. [code=css]a:hover span&...

Looks like the USPS is considering dropping Saturday deliveries.

The article make a couple of semi-valid points about people who receive checks and prescription drugs in the mail. Personally, I think it would just push people to plan a little better.

Hopefully Opera will work out the whole " doesn't work if there's not a <script> element in the webpage's source code " bug in extensions soon. It would also be nice if I could log into the account I submitted that extension under. When I use the "lost password" thing it ta...

Always contact the moderator who has either replied to your Website Review, or sent you a PM about it. In your case, that would be labrego.

On Ubuntu, Apache uses "apache2.conf" instead of "httpd.conf". If you look towards the bottom of apache2.conf you'll see something like this.

Is this a system you leave running constantly, or do you shut it off when you go to bed/etc ?

In 2006 something called the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act was signed into law. The spirit of that act appears to basically let the USPS operate more like a Corporation, than a Government entity. One of the provisions in that act would seem to suggest that when it made sense, for instanc...

PHP has default values for every directive as you can see here . So, if the value you have in php.ini differs from the default value, then you may get unexpected behavior if you get rid of php.ini. As for loading php.ini files, there is no error notification code in the PHP source that handles loadi...

I guess Richland is about 300 miles from the coast, but if there are days you can smell the ocean when you go outside, bringing the outside air directly into the computer is a really bad idea. Salty sea air is extremely corrosive. :)

Did you know that when a weather forecast says there's going to be a 25% chance of rain, what that means is for the area they're providing a forecast for, 25% of that area will get rained on during the day ?
