Another gotcha. This time with MySQL (4.1). I just have learned that using table named fields is not possible. Why?
mysql> CREATE TABLE fields (`id` int(11) DEFAULT NULL auto_increment PRIMARY KEY);
ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax;
check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version
for the right syntax to use near
'fields (`id` int(11) DEFAULT NULL auto_increment PRIMARY KEY)' at line 1
It looks like my plan to use field model have failed :))
I’m lucky user of Rails Recipes (from Pragmatic Programmers). Using this book is real pain solver. I have just enabled RSS for Run-N-Share (not deployed yet it on production server) well below 20 minutes. This is why I like Rails and Ruby…
It took over a year, a lot of efforts, but finally, today I have visited US consulate and I’ve got my visa approved :))
Well the world is small… Company, which sponsor my visa is located in Hoffman Estates, IL. Small Chicago suburbs. Imagine my surprise when consul looking at my papers said: “Hoffman Estates? I have worked there!” :))
I was inside A380. Well… it is huge! It is hard to believe, that so big thing can fly… Impressive…
I’m involved in cooperation with polish company, which was chosen to provide some services for Airbus. I can not give any details (before end of project), but I will write some software for Airbus. I can not say what it is supposed to do, but it is not any on plane software, so You should not fear :)) I don’t have to say, that I’m very excited with new challenge :)
So, last few days off line was caused by my trip to Toulouse, France to meet people in Airbus, to discuss details of project. I was first time in France, and I have say, that judging from what I have seen it is nice place to live (southern France). Almost Mediterranean climate, not so Mediterranean attitude :)) makes perfect combination. And, of course French food…
For serious cons living there You should treat properties prices, which have become real high. Well as for now I’m concerned by home and land prices around Warsaw ;))
For tomorrow I have scheduled visit in US consulate, I have to finish process for my H1B visa approval. However in current circumstances (I mean: my family not my work for Airbus) I don’t see it will be possible to fly to work to US in next few months. Hopefully my work permit is valid up to Oct 2009, so if not in this year, maybe in 2008.
