Creating Database

Hi All, To be honest, I don't know if my inquiry fits within this forum, but I really had no idea where to post what I need. I am currently interning at a non-profit nature center which relies heavily on volunteers. As art of my internship, my supervisor would like several databases created. I don't know what program would work best for my needs and I was hoping somebody could give me a few ideas for what I need to create. Here is what she would like: 1. A volunteer database that is searchable by the training and expertise each volunteer has received. Let's say for instance, that we are having an insect program and only those who have been trained for the program can volunteer. I need to be able to search a keyword or from a drop down menu individuals who have received this training. A spreadsheet would suffice, but some individuals have so many training sessions that it would get a bit long. We also have over a hundred volunteers. 2. A teacher database that shows the grades and classes each teacher in our system teaches. We have school groups come out, and if their is a fourth grade program, there is no reason to contact every other grade teacher. 3. This is the really challenging one. We have rental programs, and all users must complete rental information which includes name, contact information, type of rental, and emergency contact. I would like to go paperless with this and if somebody rents more than once they have to fill in the information every time. I would like to be able to search their name and have all of their information come up, then input their rental type and time, which would give me a list of how many rentals we have had per day/week/year and how much money we have made. As I said, I could just make a spreadsheet for the first two but I would like something a bit more sophisticated. If I was not clear about anything, please let me know.

mysql database got corruption?

Hi all, It seems that whenever I restart my Windows 7 64bit box MySQL gets corrupt. I just wanted to make this bug known as it's a serious issue. Are there any special settings I need to setup (task scheduler) to prevent this from happening? Is there a way to inform windows to shutdown MySQL? Thanks for any help.

I'm talking about a "Download ALL Instructables" link.Or be able to order a stack of CDs/DVDs... That would work too...

I need an iTunes-style database solution for all my videos...

Hello, Newby to Instructables, read about it in the newspaper today.  Looking forward to some help/input on this project of mine... I have a huge (and growing) volume of video media. pushing 5 TB, and I'll be buying another 2 TB drive before autumn.  Now, having all this media at my fingertips on my PC without having to rifle through my DVD library is great, but it's only half the battle.  What I really want to be able to do is search through all my videos and TV episodes with the same ease that I go through my music library in iTunes. So, what I need is some way to list each video, and list each "tag" that applies to that video (SciFi, TV, comedy, romance, etc., you get the picture).  So, Excel serves well enough for that part, though I'm not married to it as a long-term solution. And, Excel fails completely as a searchable database, where I can just type in, say, "SciFi" and get the database to present me with every single Start Trek, Stargate, B5, etc. TV episode and movie that I own. So, can anyone suggest a program that would already be able to do this for me? iTunes itself isn't a solution, because although I could  make a plethora of empty MP3 files, import them into iTunes, and assign all the metadata I want to them, there wouldn't be anyway to click on the empty MP3 entry and have the movie/video pop up and play. Also, my videos are either direct DVD rips or mkv files, so I can't import either of those into iTunes either. Thanks in advance!

mysql server does not want to get some packages because of error 'Packet Too Large'. How to fix? Answered

For some reason i unable to receive a packet sent on MySQL 4.5 server. Trying to get it MySQL just shows me an error "Packet too large" and closes the connection. Namely this situation is not so bad, i can receive the packet partially, after all. But to prevent such issues i want to know what should i do to increase the receiving option. I suppose there are some kind of limitation, it would be logical. I have not seen such error just because i used to handle small-sized packets. Is it possible?

Remote Access and Control for various Sensor Data and Output Devices

I am working on a project that involves multiple sensors as well as a handful of output devices, and am looking for the best solution on how to collect data from the sensors, have certain actions occur based off of the sensor input, as well as be able to have a web-accessible page where the logged data could be viewed. Additionally, I would also like to be able to modify certain variables (such as changing thresholds for when output devices are activated, for how long they are activated, etc) on the webpage. A very similar solution to a different situation that I am familiar with is OctoPrint. With OctoPrint, you can view your 3D printer live from the comfort of any machine on the network, as well as send custom commands to it, or even initiate prints. My application would be very similar to what OctoPrint offers, with the addition of being able to view collected data from sensors, as well as changing variables within scripts. The current hardware I plan on using consists of an Arduino as an analog to digital converter for the analog sensors, as well as the controller for relays and other output devices. The Arduino would be plugged into a Raspberry Pi (or really any machine would work, I think), which is essentially how an OctoPrint setup works. Ideally, I would like to have the Raspberry Pi act as the webserver/host (I would be the only individual accessing the webpage, so a pi should be enough for that? If another computer would be needed to host the webpage, then Ideally I would like to omit the pi altogether.)I would like the input data to be logged and displayed in a graphical manner, through graphs and charts. A friend recommended using a database, such as MySQL; is this a good option, or is there something that would be more efficient? The control/data page wouldn't necessarily need to be accessible to the world wide web, although that would be convenient (I would prefer not needing to pay for a domain though). So long as I could access it from the local network, that would suffice.If there is some program/software that allows me to do all/most of this, that'd be great. Otherwise, I'm just looking for input on what would be the most optimal route going about this. Ideally the less complicated the better, but I'm not afraid of learning new things.

How do I display specific rows from a SQL database using $_GET? Answered

For my latest website, I have created a MySQL database to store user-submitted data. Currently for the homepage a PHP script connects to the database and selects a random row to display on the page. The table is set out like this: ID               Quote                 Author                Category 21              blah                    anonymous        Life 22              hdhshs               anonymous        Food I wanted to create a page where when a user goes to www.example.com/post.php?id=45 , it displays the row with the ID number of 45. That I have done successfully. But now I want to create a page where if you go to, say: www.example.com/cat.php?catergory=Life, where it lists all rows under Life. But after tweaking the code for the Post page, it doesn't seem to work. Code for Post Page: $user="**********"; $password="**********";$database="**********"; $connection=mysql_connect('**********',$user,$password);@mysql_select_db($database) or die( "Unable to select database");  $sql = "SELECT * FROM `quotes` WHERE `id` = " . mysql_real_escape_string ( $_GET['id'] );  mysql_select_db ( $database, $connect ); if ( @mysql_query ( $sql ) )  { $query = mysql_query ( $sql );   $row = mysql_fetch_assoc ( $query );   echo '' . $row['quote'] . '#' . $row['id'] . ''; }  else { die ( mysql_error () );  }?> What do I need to change in the above code, to display a list of every row in the database with a category of whats in the URL?  This is my first time running a MySQL database, so sorry if the code is a bit squiffy.

DIY Electronic Salvaging Database / Website [team needed]

Hello, I am a web developer by trade and have fallen in love with physically computing things. I use Instructables regularly to gain inspiration for my out projects here at home.  The magic of Instructables, for me, is the sheer massive amount of ways to re purpose our electronics. Some articles here document devices more thoroughly than the manufacturers themselves. When I was following TinkerNut's Instructable to make a 3D printer I had a spark of an idea, and I've never bought electronics the same since. While deconstructing DVD drives, and regular paper printer I was playing the stepper motor lottery. This printer has a stepper, this one doesn't. Well, I can basically walk into a Goodwill now and pick up a stepper motor any time I want now that I know what to look for. When I was following an Instructable to make a joule thief I knew that somewhere in my head of dead tech I had to have a NPN transistor. I just had to! But I had no clue where to begin looking. There were transistors of all shapes and sizes, some with text some without. I learned a lot of different transistors this way.  I am currently working on a Beta for a website I want to make. I don't want to buy the domain just yet until I get some feedback. This is a content driven database so I am looking for some help. Teamwork Makes the Dream Work! The Idea Well, the idea is to create a website / database that you can go to and type in Stepper Motor and be presented with a list of different stepper motors. When you click on a type of stepper motor you will see a list of products that contain this or similar stepper motor. Then you can hit a thrift store (my local Goodwill always has a ton) and grab the right thing, the first time. On this list of stepper motors there will be a list of Instructables using this part. In this way the site will work alongside Instructables to enhance and instruct the community. (note: I hope this isn't seen as a threat by Instructables, because its not) Also, now when buying tech I am able to analyze the product for its value, resale value, and re-purposing value. I can snag a cheap LCD from the Dollar Store or even NPN transistor if need be. Possibilities Users can salvage and sell themselves? Partner with Instructable community? Horde salvaging - (user 1 wants C02 cartridges, (user 2, 3, 4, 5 send cartridges to us (free box) and we send them to people putting them to use. Looking for some people to help me nail down the idea and beta test database functionality. Let me know if you have any ideas or want to join the effort. I really think this could be extremely useful to us who don't like to waste, especially precision instruments such as stepper motors and NPN transistors. This is for way more than just those though. Cheers!

Creating an Invention and Instructable Mixing Software or Website

I was wondering if we could create a new website device, we could call it the Invention Mixer Software.It would basically be a large database of practical or groundbreaking inventions, and maybe many of the instructables here.We could arrange it according to use (Renewable Energy, Agricultural, Games, etc) and we could arrange it like a shopping cart selection. Each item would contain Name of Invention, Its basic use and advantage over common inventions, and the link to the manufacturer or institution doing the research.With the shopping cart, you can choose the inventions and instructables you like and store them in the website, or copy and paste to your friends to discuss,compare or talk over.It would be more than hobbyists website. People making new inventions could compare with the products now in the market, and compare it to instructables that can make similar inventions.It would be like a cheap, low cost utility compared to the very powerful but expensive invention making machines like:INVENTION MACHINE Softwarehttp://www.invention-machine.com/productsservices.aspxor stuff like this:CREAX Invention Softwarehttp://www.creax.com/innovation_software.htmThis would be the every man's invention software on a website.

UK Government Wants to Build a Database of Every Phone Call and Email

This just crossed my News ticker this morning: 10:20 AM on Tue May 20 2008By Adam Frucci The plans for the new database are currently being drafted up and may be proposed for inclusion in the draft Communications Bill later this year. While many of the types of politicians you'd expect are behind it, a number of others are, thankfully, vehemently against it. They're against it not because of the basic violation of citizens' privacy that would come from such an action, however. Instead, they point to the UK government's lousy track record with data security as a security threat great than whatever threats they'd be stopping by being able to look up those emails of you flirting with the girl you met at the office Christmas party. It's another really strong argument against giving governments overreaching powers to spy on their citizens.Hopefully, the people of England will get properly angry and vocal against this plan, keeping it from ever becoming a reality. The next step, after all, will be the thought police, and at that point it's really too late. {BBC via Boing Boing }Big Brother IS watching, everywhere......"If you wanted a sure sign that the Orwell-ization of Great Britain is underway, then look no further than this. Lollipop ladies, those kindly old women who man the main roads next to school, similar to the US crossing guard, have been issued with video cameras to record lollipop rage as school-side road rage is known.The cameras, which record traffic coming from both the front and the back, mounted on the lollipop lady's cap, and attached to an Archos portable DVR, have been developed by a British firm, Routesafe.

Help to make an automatic school attendance maker and database manager using arduino?

Hey Frnds! It struck in my mind to make an attendance board that will display the 'Total no. of students'; 'Total present Students'; and 'Total Absent Students' on a Info Board inside the class and there will be a sort of scanner that will scan the Id-Cards of students and compare the data with the pre-stored data and change it real-time on the info board. It will also enter the data aquired into and excel or access worksheet just as an attendance register. This will ease up the tasks very drastically.  The info board part is easy to make but im having problems to figure out how to make the scanner and how to register the data to a worksheet or database automatically.

I got my new drivers license today. I would have kept my old one, but the guy working there said they were sending it to Jefferson City, the capitol of Missouri. They already have all the info on the card in their database. How much material do forensics need to get a good dna sample? That would be a really clever way of building a database without people knowing if you could isolate a person's dna from the other people that touched the card.

YAFR: Make "last post" a link to the comment itself

Since the I'bles database knows which comment was the most recent in a given forum, how about making the "last post" phrase in "last post by XYZ" a link to that comment? WITHDRAWN 14 Nov 2008: See my comment below.
