Private messages are now no longer case sensitive on the user name. CRZ == crz == Crz.

You still have to type the name correctly though Also, Guru Zim != GuruZim.

!= means is not equal to.

I think we're ok.

I only tested with 'crz' though, and in retrospect, I wonder if someone hadn't already regged that one...

No one can reg as you with lowercases or uppercases differently. It was checking for this, as I thought.

(I did check the code, but instead of using strtolower like I did in the PM code, it was set up using strcasecmp. I know you all care.)

BucsFan: sweet question; I'm betting Guru actually started sweating for a second there

GuruZim: I'm betting the strtolower() method is quite a bit cheaper. You'd have to suck it and see to find out, though. You might also want to do a s/\W//g (although you might need the Perl Regex mod for PHP for this) in order to ensure that people can't register stupid variants like GuruZim.

Do you mind if I ask which programming language you're speaking?

If you were talking to me, that was a brutally abbreviated Perl regex:

Assuming you've got the variable in Perl's default variable, s/\W//g is the same as $_ =~ s/\W//g

Guru's working in PHP, and that's Perl regex, so he'd probably have to install the Perl regex module for PHP.

If you meant Guru, strtolower() and strcasecmp() are PHP functions.

It's ok - I'm all Microsoft here at work. I actually don't really know PHP at all - I have to look up what I'm trying to do at MySQL.org or PHP.net almost every time I make a change.

I must admit, though, that I'm starting to really like PHP. I think it might be time for me to get some formal training in it.

Which versions are you running? Here at Cyber World, we're running Windows 2000 Server, and Windows XP Professional on our workstations. They're rather spiffy.

No SQL Server?

Count me in for that - PHP looks quite neato, but I can't find the time or inclination to learn it. Ditto ASP.NET. I need to find a spare month and sit down and learn both of 'em.

We have about 1000 work stations here at my unnamed company. We are running Windows 2k on everything at this point, which is quite amazing considering that up until late last year when we made the switch they were all running Windows 95. As a former help desk tech for that environment, I can tell you that it was a nightmare.

My real job is as a DBA for Microsoft SQL server along with a lot of minor .asp programming. I support all of our IIS machines here, the Crystal Enterprise and Seagate Info servers, all Crystal Reports installations, and the SQL 7.0 and 2000 installations in this building.

I also do a lot of data transfers out of Oracle machines (our Aspect ACD has an Oracle backend, as does our historical database in our data warehouse which I plunder nightly for work order information). I also have to support the SQL databases that our 3rd party stuff (E-talk, E-Workforce management, WebSense, Vital Suite, etc.) use.

So yeah, some SQL server Just not on my personal stuff. You think I can afford the license for that? MySQL all the way!
