in thread All I want for Christmas is:

That's definately not what I'm saying. I don't need BS 9/11 conspiracy theories to make my point. I'm saying the government's becoming fascist. Give a definition of fascism, and I'll show you that America is increasingly fitting the description.

Actually Roy, it's funny you should bring up Iraq. Why DID the US invade Iraq? They are not an Islamic republic, nor have they threatened the US as Iran has. The answer: the population was motivated by fascist rhetoric.

But I totally agree with your battle cry!

Sense to the infidels! Sense to the neoconservatives!

(Let the Iranians work on Iran, at least until we've separated oil-motives from improve-the-world-with-our-concept-of-democracy-motives).

update: corrected "oil-motives from improve-the-world-with-our-concept-of-demoncracy-motives" to "oil-motives from improve-the-world-with-our-concept-of-democracy-motives"

    But it will have nothing to do with your claim that the government is using the Muslims as a foil to get us into war. BTW, "fascism" is another overused, emotionally-charged buzzword that impedes meaningful discussion.

    Yeah, you sound like a real level-headed guy. Thanks for your insight.

[Corion]: Meh. SQL window functions would even make pagination easy/trivial (but not performant), as rank() over (partition by user order by timestamp) / 10 as page would give me a page number for each item, with 10 items per page.
[Corion]: Of course, the query performance for "all items on page 10" is likely worse than rank() between 100 and 109 , but if that means I can write 15 lines of SQL instead of needing to think about how to partition things and how to encode the page size...
[Corion]: ... that would be nice. But alas, I'm currently tied to SQLite as minimum implementation, and it doesn't implement window functions :-(
