in thread Software piracy- what would you do?

This raises another interesting question: I was able to find a site that had The Perl CD Bookshelf available online through Google, and Google has at least partially cached the books. I was able to find the full text of more than one chapter.

So, even if the site goes down, Google will still have the cached version available. You would think that they would have gotten in trouble for this by now.

On a related note, I was able to browse MathWorld after the site was (forcibly) taken down by CRC Press, but before the Google cache disappeared.

[Corion]: My current approach for subtotals involves rerunning the given query, with the hint to the user that they should use a temporary table if they want better performance.
[Corion]: But I could create that temporary table in the module and use it for the improved perfomance directly instead.
[Corion]: And the question is, what would be better/preferred ;-)
[Corion]: Hmm - not exactly like the ROLLUP command. Ah well.
[hippo]: Make it an option?
