mySQL gotchas

Met with the Electromagnetics Teaching Assistant in the early afternoon to work on a few problems. Adam and I had a late lunch at Little Dino’s. Finished Problem Set 2 for Electromagnetics. The var partitition filled up on chronos, leading to some rather unusual system stability issues on Linux.

I learned that Linux a executable can be run even if its noexec bit is set by directly calling /lib/ I also found a useful page describing common mySQL gotchas – features which work as advertised, but not as expected. Some of these are a little scary, actually.
