Dumb question, no experience with the syntax, but should there be a wildcard -or- use of something other than equals (sorry, if I'm way off base, but most query syntax I use requires like or wildcarding). -t On Thu, 25 Oct 2007, Jonathan Rochkind wrote: That was a typo in my problem report,

Hi Roy, Not sure how to make this succinct enough to be elegant (i.e. a bullet point) but... We have a large enough staff to break into software when necessary. A typical scenario is: We need a feature added (or bug removed) to make workflow tenable We request the feature (bug fix) We hear

Hi Eric, Given the likely need to map back from an alternate name (string search in the definition?) to the auth name (maybe the most common use for such a service?), I think this route might be on the inefficient side. I've been wondering about names as handles, with a crossref-like middleman

Hi All, It ain't free, but there's a lovely client for mysql called navicat (http://www.navicat.com/) that we've been using. And even though I *can* do command line queries, gotta say I love pulling lines between tables to set them up. It's not too expensive and I find that for light to

Hi, One approach to the UI might be to use Cooliris (was piclens) and generate a media rss file in call number order. It's limited (to people who have installed cooliris) but it's essentially a coverflow. You can do other things within the browser, but few are going to feel as immediate

Are you are referring to a find in page, where a user presses CTRL-F in the browser? Yes, sorry to be unclear. If so, it will depend on the browser. Google Chrome 2.0 will find matches regardless of the diacritics (i.e. user can type placa and it matches pla�a, and vice versa). This doesn't
