Search for non-duplicates bettween two tables.

Posted in Information Technology, MySQL, PHP, Programming, Web Development with tags , , on 2011.17.02 by w3bguy

I recently had some issues trying to make sure that two columns from two different tables were the same.  After some random code writing, I came up with the following MySQL code…  Hope it helps others…

/* return from first table */
$checkTable1=@mysql_query("SELECT table1.column1 FROM table1 LEFT JOIN table2 ON table2.column2 = table1.coumn1 WHERE table2.column2 IS NULL");

/* return from second table */
$checkTable1=@mysql_query("SELECT table2.column2FROM table2 LEFT JOIN table1 ON table1.column1 = table2.column2 WHERE table1.column1 IS NULL");

I’m sure there is a better way to accomplish it, but this worked for my needs…  Just a quick search, and then I added some extra code to update the tables if there are any discrepancies.

The IT Project-Tracking Database: Keep Your Key People in the Loop

A project-tracking database should not just be a nominal entity that exists for the sake of existence; rather, it should contain some key attributes that every person in the company can draw important conclusions from — and use them to form the basis of key decisions that impact not just the project itself, but also the overall vision and direction of the company.

Information Technology is a project-centric industry. Every task is either performed as a part of a project or constitutes rollup toward creating a new project. No individual, organization, department or company can escape the rigor of discipline and perseverance that project management enforces as prerequisites for success. However, information Technology often receives a bad rap for the relatively small number of successful initiatives as a percent of the total initiatives launched, compared with other departments.

Technologists are viewed as inherently more disciplined — and more capable of thinking and planning in a structured manner — than their “non-technical” counterparts. I believe this classification is unjust. No matter how trained the human mind, it still cannot replace the uber-productivity tools that assist project discipline today. Initiatives fail mid-stream or fail to take off not because they are not good initiatives, but because of the improper amalgamation of the prowess of the human mind with the appropriate technology (read tools) that it has created for its assistance….

Web analytics provider StatCounter is reporting that Google’s Chrom browsre has overtaken Apple’s Safari in the US for the first time. Research is from the firm’s StatCounter Global Stats report for the week beginning June 21.

Chrome with 8.97% took third place in the US browser market ahead of Safari with 8.88%. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer still dominates the US Internet browser market with 52%, followed by Firefox (28.5%).

The data is based on an analysis of 3.6 billion page views (874 million from the US) for the week 21 to 27 June 2010 collected from the StatCounter network of over three million websites

Web developer builds nuclear reactor in Brooklyn warehouse

It sounds like the premise of an especially geeky comic book: Web developer by day, trailblazing nuclear engineer by night.

Mark Suppes is a Web developer for the fashion house Gucci, but in his off-hours, he tinkers with his homemade nuclear-fusion reactor in a Brooklyn warehouse, unknown to his neighbors. In a video interview with BBC News’ Matthew Danzico, Suppes cheerfully shows the reporter how his reactor works, warning him to step back as the machine activates and emits a small amount of radiation. The reporter is heard laughing nervously in the background, telling Suppes to be careful…

Twitter Gets One Step Closer to Google

It’s no secret that Twitter has been mostly centered on a “push” mentality – throw enough out there and something will stick, and you’ll gain followers in the mean time. Of course, the more followers you have the better chance of something sticking, or being shared. And, the cycle goes on. But things are about to change. Twitter is on its way to becoming a “pull” interaction – just like another world-famous website, Google.

If you think about Google like a social network, the similarities are clear. As a Google “publisher” your goal is to be listed and get the attention of others. When successful, your content is shared via syndication and links. As a Google “user” you’re there to find information, through search. When you find something you like, you might link to that website, bookmark the page or subscribe to the site’s RSS feed or e-mail newsletter. In other words, you become a “follower” of that website. But imagine if you were to “friend” every website as the result of a search … you would quickly become overwhelmed. Now take all of that and apply it to Twitter. It’s not much different….
