in reply to can't we all just get along

I'm fairly new to the monestary and over the last couple weeks I have been lurking around and learning more as I go. I am going to have argue hat heated discussions are good as long as you stick to the code and process and you don't attack anybody personally, and people should not take offense to these discussions personaly because it's about the code and not about the person or their personality. A heated discussion can actually make someone think a little bit differently about a problem and some learning will usually come out as a result even if the parties still end up disagreeing. The Unix/Perl philisophy has always been there are more than one way to do something. Just my 2 cents, you don't have to agree and I respect that. --zemote--

    Yeah... my stress level this week has been at 110% (+ bad weather this whole month... avi) so that could have something to do with it... just wish that some times people don't comment on conversations that have happened in the past in the monestary... (eg: the holy wars)... Just my $0.02 again. Cheers.

      Just because you aren't broad-minded enough to enjoy all types of weather, doesn't mean some types of weather should be flamed as "bad".

[Corion]: Meh. I have a very simple mechanism to scrape+track prices, and even to send me mail if something changes (via cron), but SQLite doesn't support window functions, so my simple SQL to determine a price change won't work :-( Maybe I should store the DB ...
[Corion]: ... in Pg, but that would mean that I'd have to deal with credentials and stuff :)
[Corion]: In fact, the whole thing is just four simple programs, one App::scrape, another being DBIx::RunSQL, and one some glue to convert a JSON object into an SQL INSERT statement (+DBI connect/execute), so it would be an incredibly simple solution...
[Corion]: ... but that simplicity falls down due to SQLite letting me down and me being too lazy to move to a real DB. Maybe DBD::CSV can handle window functions...
[hippo]: Pg has the "trust" mechanism if you don't fancy using credentials for a trivial db.
