Re: sorry :(

If I understand you correctly, there is a command line that makes the DB repair the table? I know only very little SQL syntax :( What would the command look like? Just "repair table sessions" ? Yes, that's a direct SQL command line I posted. Replace sessions with whichever table is crashed. If Sess...

Re: sorry :(

What SQL type are we on? I'm guessing MySQL?

If so, and you get a table crash again, you can try:

repair table sessions

Or replace sessions with whatever has crashed. That way you don't need to drop and reload the table.

Re: Author's Check-in #11

In that case, I've been spun a few lies over the years... :p I think it varies based on what sounds best tbh. And no, actually we don't tend to use whilst in idle ...

I've written the Tale of Arcania (Champion of Compassion). And I very nearly couldn't finish it from crying so much. :( It's 3,600 words, more or less.

Re: Author's Check-in #11

I did a second read-through of Book 10 today, fixed a few typos and plot inconsistencies. RJ has the first draft as of last night but as he's still only 30% through #9 it's gonna take a while... ;)

I'll certainly do that! Thank you!
Can I plug Hyperlight? :D :p You'll find the links to the first 8 novels and a short story collection for free right in this forum. :D Book 9 is with RJ for beta reading and 10 is nearly ready to go to him. :)

^Ah, that explains why I was getting an invalid form error when I tried to log in earlier. ;) And why my password reset that I tried as an attempt to fix it (which also failed spectacularly) was reverted.

Re: Author's Check-in #11

Bought. Kindle is way cheaper than paperback, is that intentional? I'd have happily paid more! :)

Up at c25 in first read-through of Hyperlight 10 now. :) Mostly minor changes.

Re: Author's Check-in #11

Two chapters today, we are now into the final stretch. :) Five more should suffice.
