Etomite: How to add the MySQLDumper Snippet via phpMyAdmin

I am trying to add functionality to a client’s Etomite site, and a script allowing quick and easy database backup through a webpage interface is a real must. Of course, WordPress2 has this built into the admin panel 🙂 … but I digress.

I was unable to save the code snippet via the Etomite admin, and got the helpful suggestion in the Etomite forum to try adding the code directly into the database using phpMyAdmin. This worked a treat.

And, compared with Firefox, it consumes only half the system resources; with equal numbers of tabs open, Firefox packs a wolloping 100,000KB, whereas Opera makes do with about 50,000KB (according to the Windows Task Manager -> Processes – Mem Usage).

But … on the downside, Opera still has huge display issues. Some web sites are not really usable – Google Mail would be the most glaring example. Boy, do they need to work on that back in Norway.

Sample the Icon Buffet

It’s one of those wonderful services I’ve been using for a while – it’s time I should mention it.

IconBuffet gives you access you loads (and I mean LOADS) of truly beautiful and professionally-designed icons. I haven’t had any spam from them – just notifications of new icon sets.
If you have friends who are IconBuffet members as well, you can exchange icons – IOW you can collect sets you may not have snagged before.

Oh, I know… it sounds kinda naff.
But honestly, give it a try. It works and it’s wonderful.
