You’ve just run a query in MySQL and it tells you "Query OK, 1 row affected, 1 warning (0.01 sec)" but not what the warning is, so how do you know what the warning was for the query that was just run?

Learning to use a water stone is the best thing you can do for your knives, especially nice ones, but learning how can be tricky. Luckily, this (very detailed) guide from KnifePlanet teaches you how, from start to finish, and includes a simple method for making sure you’ve sharpened enough to make a difference.
The “Sharpie Trick,” as they call it, is simple:
Speaking of building muscle memory, here is a good exercise for you, a confidence builder: Paint the edge of your knife and bevel with a Sharpie and sharpen the knife at an angle that results in the removal of that Sharpie. In many cases it will be close to the 20 deg angle anyway. When you have achieved success, repeat the process and do that ten times. Now flip the blade over and do it on the other side, you don’t need to use much pressure here, just a little. You want to get to the point where you can place the knife at the SRA “Sharpie Removal Angle” the first time, every time.
You might want to practice getting the angle right on a knife that you’re a little less concerned with before you break out your favorite knife and go to work here. We should also mention that the Sharpie trick is actually deep into this guide—if you’re starting from the basics and have never used a water stone, you should start at the beginning, where the guide explains the various grits of stone available, which ones you should choose, and the supplies you’ll need for your sharpening station. Luckily, you won’t need much—just a water stone, a stone holder, water, and a towel, not to mention your knife.
From there, it’s all about learning the right angles and how to move your knife across the water stone, how to keep it well lubricated while you do so, and how to feel the changes you make in the burr of the knife as you straighten out the tip. Once you’ve honed the knife and raised the burr, then you move on to actually refining the blade and making it sharper overall.
The video above is a walkthrough from start to finish, and worth a watch, but if you want to follow step by step, hit the link below. It’s definitely worth a bookmark if you want to learn how to do this yourself (as opposed to sending your knives to a pro to be sharpened—who’s already mastered this technique.)
I was setting up a new email account for a client. We got to the point where they needed to input a password, so I passed the keyboard to the client so they could do it themselves. Instead, they handed me a piece of paper with what was actually quite a decent, complex password. I keyed it in, made sure that the account worked in their email client and handed back the piece of paper.
After I did some more work, the client asked me a question.
Client: How can I log in if I don’t have my computer?
Me: That’s no problem. You don’t have to access it from your email client. You can access the webmail from any computer.
The client asked me to show them how to use, so I fired up their web browser, showed them how to get to the login page and invited them to practice logging in.
Client: What’s the password?
Me: The one you gave me.
Client: I can’t remember it.
Me: Neither can I, but it’s on that piece of paper.
Client: I don’t have it anymore.
Me: You had it ten minutes ago, it must be around somewhere.
Client: I threw it on the fire.
Sure enough, there was a healthy fire burning in the hearth.
You may recall that an archaeological crew stumbled onto a old rifle leaning against a tree during a survey of the Great Basin national park last November. The Las Vegas reviewjournal.com now reports that “the park sent the Winchester Model … Read More

She’s the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, and this illustration of the Millennium Falcon absolutely blows us away.
Drawn up by Paul Johnson, it’s part of a series of pictures that he’s drawn up of the Star Wars universe. The image of the Falcon has captivated me from the moment I saw it: the detail and quality of the illustration here is exquisite. I’m reminded more than a little of Mobius and his art style.
Here’s some other examples of his recent work:

Microsoft recently cut their OneDrive storage amounts so that Office 365 subscribers get 1 TB while free users only get 5 GB. Even their paid plan limit was brought down to 50 GB. In short, Microsoft boned users with this move. And to show who’s really the boss of user satisfaction, Google is now offering up to 1 TB of Drive storage for free users. There’s a catch, of course, but the stipulations are quite reasonable. After all, 1 TB is a lot to give away for free! Microsoft’s Onedrive is the worst online cloud storage service I have ever…
