On Dining

I’m going to avoid using mobile phones at dinner tables and restaurants. At home dad doesn’t let me read or watch TV while at the dinner table. I’m slowly recognizing the value of it.

To start with, it shows that you are uninterested in the people who are sitting with you.

Eating and socializing are both objectives of dining together. The weightages are not in that order. 

Swear at me if you find me staring at a screen or thumbing on it..

Changing privileges for mysql doesn’t take effect

Here is a snippet from the manual

If you change the grant tables directly (for example, by using INSERTUPDATE, or DELETE statements) and your changes seem to be ignored, remember that you must execute a FLUSH PRIVILEGES statement or a mysqladmin flush-privileges command to cause the server to reload the privilege tables. Otherwise, your changes have no effect until the next time the server is restarted. Remember that after you change the root password with anUPDATE statement, you will not need to specify the new password until after you flush the privileges, because the server will not know you’ve changed the password yet!
