Surrender Hope all… wait, is that Snow?
I actually shed a tear yesterday. Jason accomplished what I thought would never happen. Liz (his beautiful and yet amazingly stubborn wife) went shooting for the first time. Though she had never before shot a gun, non of us doubted Liz’s shooting abilities. Mostly because I was already throughly convinced that she could kill any one of us, at any time, with anything she chose to use.
Hope you had a good time Liz! This finally proves, once and for all, that… “Guns don’t kill people. Liz kills people!”

MySQL Database Backups
MySQL AB has, in its Reference Manual for MySQL, a section on database backups. The simpliest way to configure database backups in MySQL is to “dump” the database (or the part of the database you want to dump) and backup that dump. The primary tool in MySQL for this is, appropriately named, mysqldump.
