What Yahoo is looking for...

Is the same as anyone is looking for:

People who are not afraid of problems. People who can solve things and people who know how to think. This class will help you get practice thinking but it won't do anything for you if you fight the process. You have to be willing to actually WRITE the review.

cool site

Please register for the forum...

I finally got the phpBB forum up and running! Please register here:

I don't have a way to email passwords (Bellsouth disables port 25), so there will be an error message...but do not despair. Simply go to Login and use the user name and password you just created. Extra credit if you leave a message in one of the forums I created.

Try this...

Try typing killiancomputers into Google. Cool.

Here's the PHP code for mysqli

This works:

if ($db = @mysqli_connect('', 'pn_461233',
'student1')) {
mysqli_select_db($db, 'pn_461233_test');
$result = mysqli_query($db, 'SELECT * FROM
while ($row = mysqli_fetch_object($result)) {
} else {
echo "Connection failed";

Google (meaning you) are your best teacher. Don't wait for me to find mysqli connection strings. Oh well.

Newer connection string

This connection string worked for me:

/* Connect to a MySQL server */
$link = mysqli_connect(
'', /* The host to connect to */
'pn_461233', /* The user to connect as */
'student1', /* The password to use */
'pn_461233_test'); /* The default database to query */

if (!$link) {
printf("Can't connect to MySQL Server. Errorcode: %s\n", mysqli_connect_error());

/* Send a query to the server */
if ($result = mysqli_query($link, 'SELECT * FROM table1')) {

print("Very large cities are:\n");

/* Fetch the results of the query */
while( $row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($result) ){
printf("%s (%s)\n", $row['name']);

/* Destroy the result set and free the memory used for it */

/* Close the connection */

No more mysql_...we are in 2007 now!
