It is hard to believe it has been a year since I fired up this blog. I have more work to do this year including moving many of my scripts into a repository of some sorts so that it is easier for others to contribute and look at the code.
I have a few other articles I never got around to publishing and hope to get them out soon. I also should have an update to my Recovery Partition Script in the next week or so ( I am awaiting new hardware to test with).
On another note, MySQL 5.6 was released this morning. I am super excited because of one feature, replication. The current MySQL replication is a giant pain in the you know what when you are working with large existing databases. The new replication features that I have been testing make it a lot easier to get replication working and ensure it keeps running.
In dev. I was still having Foreign Key replication errors if you aren’t careful how you setup the MySQL db’s. As of this morning, MySQL.com posted a replication white paper that I have been reading. I was missing a few other configuration options that may or may not help. I will post a follow up when I finish my testing and have my configuration parameters locked down.
At any rate, thanks to those who provided feedback on my scripts or were kind enough to drop a comment.
Here is to another year.
