I opened this day’s sessions with a smile.

Antony Curtis and Arjen Lentz have authored the OQGraph storage engine a while back. I had every intention to try it out, but never got round to it. Which is why I was happy to find this session in the conference. OQGraph is a specialized engine, and comes to solve …

You have to love the Planet MySQL voting system
+13 Vote Up -19Vote Down

Within a few hours my post Installing Mediawiki on Oracle Enterprise Linux LAMP stack got 5 negative votes.

Wow, I’d be glad if these people could felt so passionately about all the other CRUD on Planet MySQL that has ZERO to do actually do with MySQL.

Using a LAMP product, and providing instructions for operation can’t be a negative voting offense. So it can only be the words “Oracle Enterprise Linux”.

For those negative people out there that care enough to …

Planet MySQL: What are you going to do with voting data?
+3 Vote Up -4Vote Down

I'm a fan of voting on planet mysql posts - but I've also realized that since I'm logged in, it allows someone to keep a pretty valuable silo of information on what interests me. If I vote up a Kickfire or Infobright post, should I expect a sales call to follow?

There's nothing in the FAQ about what happens with the data.
