Recently I worked with a client that wanted to export a MS Access DB into MySQL, the conversion was done by a third-party but I was asked to confirm that all the data from the tables was present in PHPMyAdmin. The easiest solution to this was to compare how many records were in each table, […]

 

Finally after many years and many scrapped projects, the new Resplace site is now taking shape and has begun to take over various aspects of the old domain. Basically I had a resources/geek site called resplace.net which is very, VERY old now and was built way back when I was quite amateurish at Web Development. […]
