Exciting news! Adrienne is resting and I hold in my arms (typing this with one hand): Liam Alexander Cole, born on Friday, March 2nd at 15:31 PST (GMT-0800). He weighs 7 lbs 11.5 oz (3501 g) and is 18.75 inches (47.6 cm) long/tall.
Sorry for miscategorizing this in the “MySQL” category — I wanted everyone to see it even if they just follow me through Planet MySQL!
And its not necessarily miscategorized… remember that babies might dream of being database engineers. This one, might follow suit in daddy’s footsteps!
Again, congratulations. Hope everyone is doing well.
Congrats man! Glad to hear it!
A new geek is with us !!! :)
Congratulations to both of you! Nice resting Adrienne, you did great!
Congratulations, best looking boy in Reno. Thank God all went well.
Love you guys,
Have you started teaching him MySQL yet?
So much for due dates, eh? ;-)
This is really exciting.
Welcome Liam, you are so precious.
Farhan and Michelle
Thanks for posting it so it hit PlanetMySQL!
Awesome…. Doe he run INNODB or MyISAM? :)
Thanks for the kind words, everyone. To answer the question of storage engines, I’d have to say that he is MyISAM — there does not seem to be any transactional integrity. He often crashes during INSERT, and there is no clear way to know his state upon restart. He does seem to have at least provisional ROLLBACK capability though, as we’ve had a few aborted transactions… although the implicit rollback did not leave the table in a completely clean state…
Hey man! Congratulations!
Wooooooohooooooo! (or should I say, W00t!)
Here’s hoping the apple falls far from the tree! ;)
Congrats Jimi and Adrienne!!!
Did I say to you to get some rest before the birth? If not, I should have… you won’t have time until he’s 20… :D
Welcome to our world, Liam! Hope you can help us make it a better place!
I’m happy for you, jeremy (and naturally for your wife, who will now have the possibility to share the “burden” with you :-)
Just wonder why it was not your kid typing this post !! :-)
Congratulations Jeremy and Adrienne!
Now you life have changed forever :)
What a gorgeous baby! Congratulations and great job. ;)
And let me suggest that the post is not miscategorized if Liam becomes a MySQL hacker. :)
Hey congrats Jeremy! This is really awesome, he’s a real cutie too. Must take after his Mom.
