3/27    Massive top level corruption in the UN?  Say it isn't so!
        \_ [ references to trolls deleted.  The article is not a troll.
             Do not question the troll censor. ]
        \_ yet another right wing conspiracy.  if it were true, it would
           have been covered by reputable news sources instead of just
           the partisan wsj and some nz rag.
           \_ when it turns out to be true, will you stop being a
              blind ass twink?
              \_ no, he'll just deny reality or claim it's a conspiracy again
                 or say it wasn't *really* like that and it's really not so
                 bad and gwb is evil and opposes the un so the un must be good
                 and if only we paid our dues on time things like this wouldn't
                 happen.   or something like that.  i've seen it before.
           \_ partisan?  you're putting the wsj in the same category as the
              nyt and the star?  i'll bet you put your faith in the nyt which
              has had multiple scandals in the last few short years.  anyone
              who would accuse the wsj of making up news needs to get their
              head examined or is a troll.  and that 'nz rag' happens to be
              one of the top notch papers in that part of the world.  what's
              on your reading list, trollboy?
              \_ I read only USA Today and the Daily Mirror.
        \_ I didn't read the link and I don't doubt it.  This is hardly news.
           UN is a bunch of corrupt criminals with diplomatic covers wanting
           to take over America.  Why don't we just get rid of this
           immunity thing the put them in camp X-ray?
           \_ troll harder.
           \_ I think the US media outlets are tanking this story since
              its an election year.

3/27    In SQL, is there any reason to use bounded VARCHAR instead of the
        unbounded TEXT? TEXT gives you the ability to expand as your start
        to insert data whereas VARCHAR is bounded, but what about performance
        and other issues?
        \_ Access and search of text datatypes tends to be pathetic compared
           to varchar performance on many databases.  I'm not an export so I
           can't speak on, say, Oracle or SQL Server's exact performance, but
           this is _certainly_ true on Postgres.  I believe many databases
           story text datatypes as unbounded linked lists.
                \_ ok so how do I find out the minimum page size per TEXT
                   on MySQL? I'm going to use FULLTEXT index on TEXT so that
                   search will be fast. Also I'm wondering how MySQL deal
                   with internal fragmentation (say you allocate 5K size, then
                   some other data comes in, then you increase the size of
                   that text to say, 6K, what happens? It's a standard heap
                   \_ All of this is *very* specific to the particular
                      database you are using.  Read the docs, read the source
                      if you can, query relevant mailing lists, etc.  Above
                      all, profile, profile, profile.
