token entry for March

I've been using an RSS reader at home, NetNewsWire Lite, and I think it has cut into posting on my own blog. The good stuff is always from some place like BoingBoing so go find it your damn self ;)

Anyway, this is a "Meta" post not just because I'm talking about not posting. It's also Meta because I felt like pointing out something you should avoid doing to your MySQL daemon (upon which my blog relies). Make sure the daemon has permission to write the files in the mysql directory. If you do something like "chown -R root /usr/local/" you're probably screwing your self. /usr/local/mysql/ (or whatever the "real" path is) probably should be owned by the mysql account and if its not, you better give the group expanded permissions and make sure the account is in that group. Looking at the *.err files in your mysql/data/ directory can help diagnose this problem.
