Justly Married

I'll most likely be buying one of these posters and you should, too. My gay and lesbian friends have just as much right to have their love legally recognized as do those of a strictly hetero persuasion. It amazes me that government can so blatantly saction such bigotry as trying to amend the constitution to outlaw same-sex marriages... just makes my blood boil.

100% of the profits from the poster will go to DontAmend.com.

Hat tip to Eric Meyer.

Odd Referers

By far the oddest link to my blog ever, http://www.kelleyfurniture.com/Office-Deskeg.html ... can't quite tell why they did :)

MySQL Whooped

This is for the benefit of those of you who found as little information as I did on Google about MySQL converting dates to Binary when using DATE_FORMAT, or just about any other formatting function inside your SQL. Now, I could have sworn I'd tried this before, but I must have been high on Pepsi. Anyway, here's the SQL that was giving me binary data:

DATE_FORMAT(tbl.field,'%Y-%m-01')

And here's what I did to make it work...:

CONVERT(DATE_FORMAT(tbl.field,'%Y-%m-01'),CHAR)

Your mileage may vary, but enjoy :)
