It would seem the MySQL is an unreliable heap of junk. I’m bored of fightíng it. If anyone has any suggestions (other than Postgres which flat refuses to run with our schema) of decent priced, but reliable databases I’d like to hear about it.
MySQL bit it again this evening, and once again couldn’t even be killed by a kill -9 (which to be honest stinks to me of a Linux kernel bug, but since neither side will admit it, we’re stuck). And they wonder why corporates won’t use Linux seriously.
Well, I’d like to say we’re looking into it, but frankly, I’m out of ideas.
