Hi everyone. PostgfeSQL has the psql interpreter. MySQL has mysql. Is that the best available?

Seriously, now people are going to go and edit every single post with an image in it, and make the URLs "protocol agnostic"?
e.g. changing i.stack.imgur.com/gCIix.png to //i.stack.imgur.com/gCIix.png

Does that work without an absolute reference that the 'protocol agnostic' URL is relative to? E.g.
[link text](//i.stack.imgur.com/gCIix.png "test")
... doesn't seem to work.
I guess it always would in a link on a web page, though
 
It may only work when you use the [1] notation in a post. See this edit. Seems frivolous to me.
My comment:
@hjpotter92 I sincerely hope you don't plan to suggest edits on every single post with images just to make the URL protocol agnostic. This is a lot of busy work for reviewers for what real gain? — Aaron Bertrand ♦ 11 mins ago
Only really useful for img src, too, since the whole reason is if I'm viewing the site under https:// and the images are http://, I'm going to have security warnings about mixed content (but who cares, really, and why am I viewing Stack Overflow in https?). Doesn't matter for links because I'm clicking to a new page (and you won't always have any idea if the destination supports SSL).

@swasheck What's your capacity plan for data volumes?
A DL980 is a fairly expensive piece of kit - especially the SQL server licensing for 80 cores.
 
Can anyone suggest a small tutorial for mysql for someone who is alrready somewhat familiar with postgresql? Just to get going?

@ConcernedOfTunbridgeWells is the plan for next Friday still on?
@FaheemMitha If you have worked with Postgres, you could take a project/database from that and try it in MySQL. And see where it breaks. You'll learn a lot about various differences by trying to fix it.

@ypercube I'm literally just trying to get started. How do I create a db in Mysql, on Debian? That is what I need to do at the moment. There are those pesky access issues you tend to forget about, creating the db user. That kind of low level crap.
A couple of pages of handholding by a MySQL user would be helpful.
 
@FaheemMitha There are many tutorials on the web. try this for start: digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/…
 
@ypercube heh, I just started looking at that. is it good/correct?
"After entering the root MySQL password" What is that?
 
@FaheemMitha I don't see this in that page.
I suppose you have installed mysql and you have the root password for mysql. Right?
 
@ypercube The former is true, the latter is not. I haven't set any root password. I read on the net that if you don't set it, it is blank. But that does not seem to be working here. Checking to see what the debian-specific docs are, if anything.
I guess I should try and find some official mysql docs.
 
you are on Debian or Ubuntu?
 
4:01 PM
@ypercube Debian wheezy.
Never mind, I'll figure it out.
I think. If I can't I may be back.
 
You can either find it or reset it, if you don't know it.
If you try to log with: mysql -u root
what happens?
 
@ypercube Ok. Turns out I hadn't installed the server. When I did, debconf pops up with a password request. Doh. Sorry about that.
