in reply to Ruminations of an ex-PM monk

I DO NOT like to post. I prefer to lurk. If I am going to post I wish to contribute, enhance and help. So I am posting.

Brother you have hit the nail square on the head. I have been a lurker for a long time. This place has been an unbelievable source of inspiration to me. Writers block has never been cleared quicker. Yet there are the few who seem to like the destruction of a society.

Maybe it is time to revise the constitution of the monastery. Maybe Vroom needs to keep track of who votes what when there is a suspected votebot. Maybe the saints need to meet in the heavens and discuss proper actions against those who would destroy that which we have tried so hard to build. I believe the Good outweigh the Bad around here.

It would be a shame to lose all of our greatest contributors. The one thing I realize is that making a difference is never an easy thing.

Do what you must!

[hippo]: Make it an option?
[Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
[Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
[Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
[hippo]: OIC. In that case leave it out but invite feature requests and see if any of the users suggest it. :-)
