Day 2 of TrueAbility’s Linux Showdown #6 hit us with some MySQL stuff. Again, some things I had never touched but I’ve done enough MySQL in my time to have figured it out quicker than 250 others who tried. I’m currently at #10, with 100% and finishing in 33 minutes 49 seconds, only 3 seconds slower than #9! Had I not messed around with one specific portion so long (I won’t say what it is in the spirit of competition) I could have done much better. Still not sure how “kicca” is #1 again and finishing in only 10 minutes… she’s “kicca”-ing ass (couldn’t resist).

Leaderboard is here, hope my standing at #10 sticks, unless they find out someone cheated like in Showdown #4.
