Re^2: Generate a unique IDby BrowserUk (Pope)
|on Nov 15, 2010 at 19:30 UTC||Need Help??|
I have databases with over 750k entries using UUID for each row and have never ran into a collision -- over a 2 year period.
How do you know you've never had a collision? Are you checking, if so how?
And are you using Data::UUID? On Windows?
If you're using this to give every new record a unique id, why aren't you using an autoincrmenting primary key?
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
