Shared Memory & Semaphores
In a research project, I want to use shared memory with semaphores.
First I have to create an environment for interprocess messaging. I'm
thinking of having a main process which creates a big shared memory
and manage all messages which are sent by objects inside the
environment. Is this method effective for a high loaded messaging
area? I heard about using ports can cause loss of data.
And, is it ok to have a main process which will get all the messages
and distribute them to target processes?

4 functions are not schema qualified:
although all others are shown with a schema name:

I cannot see the difference in the initialization script to explain that.
Maybe something wrong with the regproc type?

Hi, we have one copy of FMD7 in the company (and probably 1 or 2 copies
of FM5). Is it possible to develop a solution that can be used
simultaneously by several users in the network?
Apparently, even if I create a runtime application and put it in a
shared folder, it refuses to run on 2 computers at the same time. Do we
need several copies of FM7 just to run the developed solution? That
would be a rip-off :(

I use mephisto (blogging engine) as my default blog. I'm trying to
take a dump of the mysql database, via mysqldump but, when I restore I
clearly see that the UTF-8 encoding is broken. The mysql version is
5.0.x and the encoding should be UTF-8. Although I can clearly see
latin chars (english posts) I can't see Greek chars(greek posts)
correctly. I found a PHP script that was made for Mysql 4.x that
somehow fixes the issue but it doesn't export the entire database, so
I can't use it.
Is there any way to make mysqldump export the dbase in *proper* utf8?

I am right in believing that if you have shared cache/multiple

that DBMS server not the shared cache ?
So to gauge hit rate - you'd sum FIX-CALLS from each DM420 output,
then do the same for HITS and divide.... (for a given page size of

Most of the time only the startup disk of a remote Mac is available
through afp. Not the second internal IDE disk, nor the external FireWire
disk. When I disable Personal File Sharing and reenable it (on the
remote Mac), all disks are available over afp.
Seems like Personal File Sharing starts up before those other disks are
mounted and then just forgets about looking for them.
Anybody else seeing this?
