the phpMyAdmin connection is paper-thin nonsense

Yep, it's nonsensical kiech of the smelliest kind. For example, lots of university and college courses still have students using phpMyAdmin as part of an introduction to web development.

All those student band / baking / biking / etc. sites (and doubtless many others developed later by the same students) are clearly illicit and must be hacked forthwith.

Re: I don't think there has ever been a more beautiful aircraft.

I'd go along with that.

Certainly, as far as civilian aircraft are concerned, nothing beats it.

I remember seeing one fly overhead as a seven year old kid and thinking it looked incredible.

Re: I expect there's a lot more to discover about how this works.

Indeed. Outstanding bit of brain-boffinry that nonetheless only scratches the surface.

Hopefully this will help accelerate related research.

"You listen here son, build the damn app, nevermind about security and all that (nevermind about documentation either but thats another story) -- if we ever get to the point where we need security it actually means the app has become successful, so we will do security *then* with the revenues generated from it"

Your boss sounds remarkably like the boss I had in my first dev. job.

Re: But would you want Salmond to be the President of Scotland?

AbelSoul I think you need to reread the post you're replying to. It asks why the English don't get on vote on Scotland staying, not on English independence.

Matters not. The English electorate could have had a vote on either (or anything else for that matter) by following the same steps. (Bit late now, granted, but that's hardly Salmond's fault.)

What I'm curious about is ... why the English cannot have one on if Scotland should stay.

Oh, but the English electorate *can* have a referendum, they just need to follow the same, simple steps as the Scottish electorate:

1. Persuade a political party to make it part of their manifesto.

2. Give that party majority vote in a parliamentary election.

3. Have your referendum.

Now Mr Z, give us a settings to STOP the videos from autoplaying. I for one don't want it.

Nor I. It seems to be yet another exercise in studying how much you can annoy your user base before they cease to be your user base.

Along with the recent enforced use of their messenger app on mobile devices, this has resulted in me barely using the site recently.

Re: Only one word comes to mind.

Dudes know how to tour...

Unlike, say, for example, Pink Floyd.

Given that there are only two members of Pink Floyd left alive and still "in the band" (and only founder member is the drummer), I suppose a downturn in touring activity can be somewhat excused.

That said, new* album comes out next month. Who knows, perhaps Gilmour and Mason might take the old show back on the road one last time.

*How new it is remains to be seen.
