Luna Bar

Went to Luna Bar at Pan Global building last Friday to meet up an old friend, QiQi from Indonesia. She came to Malaysia for eye surgery. Before the surgery we had a gathering with her. I went with Alan and Evan, at the same day, we celebrated Evan’s cousin Judy’s birthday with her husband, and met my secondary school mate Cherry there too.

Beautiful Junk

Came back from Penang yesterday, went to art event Beautiful Junk with Soundscape bands Nao, Citizen of Icecream and Mumster. It was a fun trip, ate a lot and walked a lot in Penang, so tiring. Show was good, met Uglymen from Penang, and a friend Kenny from Penang too. After leaving Penang stopped at Ipoh and tried Ipoh chicken rice and tau geh, taste very good.

Milestone

Finally, I’ve handed up my resignation letter to the company that I’ve served for more than 2 years, and went to my future company and signed the offer letter. So from July I’m going start working at KLCC, in a multinational company based at Holland: http://www.exactsoftware.com.

It’s an achievement in my career and a milestone in my life too. Hope this new job will bring in more new experiences to both my live and my career. 🙂

New hairstyle, new life

New syntax for new MySQL

Downloaded new version of MySQL database, version 4.1.12. Just like usual, many new features.

When I execute my old PHP programs (version 4), there is an error occured that I can’t connect to my new MySQL database — old password is not usable.

After searched the net, found few ways to overcome this as shown at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/old-client.html

So I have to reset the password at MySQL Command Line Client so that my old PHP program can connect to the database, and it works.

If using PHP version 5, there is a new extension to connect to MySQL version 4.1 and above, that is mysqli (short of MySQL Improved), documentation at http://php.net/mysqli. So in future we need to work with database using these commands like mysqli_connect(), mysqli_fetch_array()… 🙂

So should we migrate to PHP5 if using MySQL 4.1 above, or still stick with old MySQL and old PHP4? (since most of the hosting company still having old installation)
