Moar About SQL Wildcards

Previously we looked at using wildcards in conjunction with the SQL LIKE operator. Wildcards allow you to search for data in a defined table. Think of them as text globbing for SQL. The wildcards available include the following:

  1. [list]: Define a ranges of characters for pattern matching
  2. [!charlist]: Matches only a character NOT specified within the brackets
  3. %: Require a single character/object in a pattern
  4. _: Allow any single character in a pattern

In this article, we’ll use the same “Customers” table from our first articles:
ID Site Contact Address City Zip Country
1 Krypted Charles Edge my house Minneapolis 55418 US
2 Apple Tim Cook spaceship Cupertino 95014 US

Hey Photos, stop opening when I plug in my devices...

When I plug my iPad in, Photos opens. I want it to stop opening when I plug it in. To make it stop, write a disableHotPlug key into com.apple.ImageCapture as true:
defaults -currentHost write com.apple.ImageCapture disableHotPlug -bool true
To enable Photos opening when you plug in a device again, just delete the disableHotPlug key:
defaults -currentHost delete com.apple.ImageCapture disableHotPlug

Remove Records From A MySQL Database

Sometimes you have data in a MySQL database that you just don’t need. You can delete tables and records pretty easily. In fact, it’s almost too easy. And there’s no undo. So be careful. And backup. And then backup again. And then snapshot again, before tinkerating with anything in this article.
In this article we’ll look at using the SQL DELETE statement to delete rows in a table. To do so, we’ll follow this basic syntax, which includes a WHERE clause to narrow the scope of the DELETE by specifying which records will be removed:
DELETE FROM table
WHERE column=value;
In this article, we’ll use the same “Customers” table from our first articles:

Virtual Strategy Magazine Article On Security Brea...

The title of this one ended up a bit more FUDy than I’d prefer, but the content’s mostly what I provided.
With the rise of SMB-friendly backup solutions like CrashPlan, Carbonite, Mozy, and Backblaze, small businesses will choose to back up their systems with alternatives to expensive tape libraries, software to drive those libraries, and countless hours spent restoring files. As more cloud-based security attacks happen, businesses will realize that having a solid backup is one of the most important aspects to device security.

3 ways to drive business decisions using the new E...

With the release of Office 2016, we unveiled a set of highly anticipated new charts to give you more ways to explore data and tell rich stories across Excel, Word and PowerPoint. The Waterfall, Histogram, Box & Whisker, Pareto, Treemap and Sunburst are six examples of powerful new charts that help you quickly visualize common financial, statistical and hierarchical data.
Below are just a few ways these new charts speed up your analysis and expand the ways you drive business decisions. We also share a sneak peek at the Funnel chart, coming soon to Office 365 subscribers.
Quickly visualize gains and losses

However, understanding and communicating your gains, losses and balances by viewing financial statements can be challenging.

Update Existing SQL Records Using the UPDATE State...

Previously we looked at finding data in a SQL database and The UPDATE statement is used to update records in a table. You can also use the UPDATE statement to update existing records in a table. When using the SQL UPDATE statement, we’ll also use the WHERE clause, as we used previously to constrain output of a SELECT statement. The WHERE locates the record(s) to be updated with syntax as follows:
UPDATE table
SET column=value,column=value,...
WHERE column=value;
The WHERE clause indicates the record(s) to update. I’ve forgotten to put it in in the past and updated every record of a database. That’s bad (unless you mean to do it). So let’s run a SELECT on our sample database from earlier, so we can see the “Customers” table from our first article:

Today’s post was written by Kristen Lueck, senior strategist for Culture and Innovation at Man Made Music, Inc.
Discovering and translating the “who, what, when, why and where” of culture—that’s a simple way to sum up my role at Man Made Music. Our company creates experiences, identities and sonic strategies for entertainment and brands, with offices and personnel across New York City, Los Angeles and the United Kingdom. You may have heard our audio logo work on brands such as AT&T, Southwest Airlines and the IMAX countdown before screenings.

Add New Records To MySQL Databases With The INSERT...

Sometimes you need to write a record into a table in a SQL database. The INSERT INTO statement creates new records in a table and can work in one of two ways. The first form does not specify the column names where the data will be inserted, only their values. When doing so, each value needs to be inserted in the columned order they appear, here the table being the name of the table you’re adding a record into and each value would be replaced with the contents of your value (don’t insert the string ‘value’ into each!):
INSERT INTO table
VALUES (value,value,value,...);
If you don’t have every value to insert, you can also list the columns to insert data in and then include the values in the same order that the columns are listed in. The second form specifies both the column names and the values to insert:
INSERT INTO table (column,column,column,...)
VALUES (value,value,value,...);

Get ready for Yammer!

Today’s post was written by Kirk Koenigsbauer, corporate vice president for the Office team.
Today, I’m excited to announce that we are activating Yammer for every eligible Office 365 tenant—new and existing—without requiring additional action on the part of admins. This allows all Office 365 customers to gain the full benefits of Yammer. It also marks the culmination of our foundational efforts—including moving Yammer into Microsoft managed datacenters and undertaking identity work with Azure Active Directory—to bring Yammer fully into Office 365.
Seamless availability in Office 365
With this groundwork laid, we’re poised to provide a new set of high-value user and admin scenarios. Every Office 365 user with a Yammer license will be able to easily access Yammer from the Office 365 app launcher or start a Yammer conversation from SharePoint, Office 365 Video Portal and, coming soon, Delve and Skype Broadcast.

Compound Searches With SQL Using AND && OR

Previously, we looked at the SQL SELECT and WHERE options to obtain output and then constrain what would be displayed in a query. The AND & OR operators are used to add additional logic so you can filter records based on more than one condition. Which is to say to search based on the contents of multiple columns within a single table. AND is used to show information if two different conditions are true and OR is used to show information if either condition is true.
Below is a selection from the “Customers” table that showed in our first article an we will use it to run some SQL sorting statements using the ORDER BY keyword:
