Mike: don't make me stop this car, kids!
Benny_Hill: Got an SQL question for you folks.I have two tables, Student and ScoresStudent+----+------+-------+| id | name | grade |+----+------+-------+| 1 | Bob | 11 || 2 | Mary | 11 || 3 | Tim | 12 || 4 | Lisa | 12 || 5 | Gary | 10 || 6 | Leah | 10 || 7 | Dean | 11 || 8 | Lori | 10 || 9 | Don | 12 |...Score+----+------------+-------+| id | student_id | score |+----+------------+-------+| 1 | 4 | 100 || 2 | 3 | 98 || 3 | 3 | 97 || 4 | 3 | 86 || 5 | 4 | 92 |...I want to list ONLY the top 3 scores for EACH student in grade 12 like so:+------+-------+| name | score |+------+-------+| Tim | 98 || Tim | 97 || Tim | 86 || Lisa | 100 || Lisa | 92 |...What would my SQL statement be?I'm sure it's simple but I've never had to use SQL since I'm an RPG programmer. In RPG I'd just READ a logical file over the Student table that only contained grade 12 students and then do a READE on a logical file over the Score table where the records were sorted by student_id, score desc.
MusicMakeMyHeadPound: SELECT name, grade.score FROM students INNER JOIN grade ON students.id=grade.student_id ORDER BY name, score DESC;Will get you the information you want. Not sure how to limit it to three each by name yet.
No_47: Then I'd suggest virus/spyware/etc scanning the machine, and updating all your drivers before trying to install again.
Mike: what version of mysql?
gayb: Service pack three is raping my xp box right now. It's wonder I can even post on the internets from the goddamned thing before it locks everything up. FARK THIS.I figured I'd let automatic updates tell me when I could get it instead of trying to get it early, but apparently they didn't bother to make it work correctly, ever. If I ever stop gaming, I'll never set e-foot inside a windows box again. *sigh*
Man On Fire: Cedega and Wine.
TehNacho: Wow. I suck.If any of you remember I've been trying to fix this guys computer. I went ahead and made the hard drive one big partition, (it was a small 33 mb partition and then one 55 gb partition) reformatted, and installed XP Home using the disks Dell provided. I figured that it would not do any harm to delete the utility partition, as I figured the malware he had installed had probably found it's way into everything.Now, when I turn on the computer, I am asked to choose between operation systems Windows XP Home or Windows XP Home. I've booted into both and they seem to be the very same. When I go into either it shows that there is 55 gb of remaining space.I pretty much want to make it so that he doesn't have to "choose."What uh, what should I do?
Fenis-Wolf: Right click My Computer, Properties, Advanced tab, Startup and Recovery, then set the Default Operating System to one of the WinXP Home installs, then set the display OS list to 1 or 0.Done.
No_47: I'm not sure if this has been added by an extension I'm using or if it's part of Firefox, but tryRight Click anywhere on page -> Reload Every -> (choose time)Right Click anywhere on page -> Reload Every -> Enableand yeha I think it 404s when you go offline
Barakku: Shiat-my farky's acting up too, speaking of FF extentions, any idea why farky 1.11 would be hiding random threads? I have no filters set up...

Befuddled: My desktop went pop, a capacitor gave way from what I can see (one is bulged with liquid coming out). Does anyone know if I can just build a new PC and plug my old HD in and have it boot up? Or will the NTSF file system have a cow if it sees a new MB and CPU?
AesopRock_00: the Reload Every Firefox plugin.
No_47: Also, referring to another question, I've found that NT-based windows rarely boots with a new motherboard. Even if a machine is running and you uninstall all the drivers first. It just bluescreens and there's no way to fix it.
Mike: 0x0000007B = INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE :)
Mike: Depends on how slow they want the page to load, and if they reeeeeally wanna use Photoshop to edit all their text vs using a text editor like everyone else...
No_47: I've got a pc here that memtest failed on after 8 hours and 7 passes... with a "unexpected interrupt" "type: divide"I don't really have any choice but to swap out hardware and run it for another 8 hours, do i?
nosajghoul: Anyway, the question : How are these people finding their stolen laptops over the internet? Unless you set up something that did something like automatically emailed yourself once a day, how would you get it back?
