  • Whats wrong with this MYSQL statement?

    INSERT INTO store_profiles ( store_id, user_id, title, address_1, address_2, city, state, zip, phone, email, website, active, show ) VALUES ( '700580','564','Skyway Workout','123 North Johnson Drive','','Beverly Hills','CA','90210','(310) 555-1234','','','1','TRUE' )

    The quote marks after the phone number are two single quotes in a row, not one double quote :)

    I get the following error

    You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'show ) VALUES ( '700580','564','Skyway Workout','123 North Johnson Drive','','Beverly Hil' at line 1

  • Credit geeks, Is there any downside?

    I have a $5000 balance on a card with 15% interest, and I can swap it on to 2 "pre-approved, holy cr@p DO read the fine print, because they hide a 39% oopsie in there" zero interest for 15 months zero transfer fee blah blah blah cards for "free".

    What's the downside if I will certainly pay the balance down to nothing in 6 months time for both cards? Besides the spooky fine print, which as I said, I can certainly avoid stumbling over?

    Is my credit going to take a significant hit?

  • Can I make a submit button from one form also submit a second form's info?

    I have a situation where I have a lengthy series of html forms that need to be filled in. Enough of them that people may not want to do it all in one go.. Long story short. there's a navigation bar (made of form submit buttons)at the top of the page that lets you move around within the forms and update or change info.. and then there is the submit button for the form you are filling in.

    Sometimes people are using the navigation menu as the "Next" button.. can I just make that work for them using JS of some kind? .. SO like the sumbit button from form A also submits any filled in info from form B even though they are not contained in the same form tag..

  • Linux Geeks! Where is the clipboard in Ubuntu 10.4?

    Okay.. What I mean is what is the program that accounts for the clipboard, and what does it use for storage? Is it all RAM does it use SWAP, and can I dump the clipboard to a file auto-magically? Obviously I know I can paste :b

    What I want to do is move where the clipboard contents are or else replicate them to another location.

    Bonus points if you know how to do it in windows or Mac!

  • Sun versus sun..... ?

    I'm putting this in Astro-space, but I guess its a grammer question.

    Sun with a capital S is always our home star Sol, whereas sun with a small s is any star with planets?

    Is this true or is this some garbage I picked up along the way, and should drop off?

    Sis doesn't live with me. Sis doesn't live my folks. Yet and still a place called ERS continually calls both of us looking for her. Each tie, I have asked them to stop calling, each time they PROMISE to call back.

    I know I can send a Cease and Desist if I am the debtor.. But can I send one if I'm being harassed, but the debt isn't mine? Or am I going to have to fly to Illinois and burn the place down?
