Office, messaging and verbs
This is a still from the classic film 1960 'The Apartment'. Jack Lemmon
plays CC Baxter, a clerk in a large insurance company in New York, and so
here you see his office - drones laid out at desks almost as far at the eye
can see. Each desk has a telephone, rolodex, typewriter and a large
electro-mechanical calculating machine. 

In some of the other shots you can see the manufacturer - 'Friden'. 

In effect, every person on that floor is a cell in a spreadsheet. The floor
is a worksheet and the building is an Excel file, with thousands of cells
each containing a single person. CC Baxter is on the 19th floor, section W,
desk 861. The links between cells are made up of a typewriter, carbon
copies ('CC') and an internal mail system, and it takes days to refresh
whenever someone on the top floor presses F9. (Shirley MacLaine plays an
elevator attendant, so this is actually a romance between a button and a
spreadsheet cell.)

MySQL :: MySQL 5.0 Reference Manual :: 7.6.3 How to Repair MyISAM Tables
Fixing crashed tables when mysqld won't start.

Run myisamchk *.MYI or myisamchk -e *.MYI if you have more time. Use the -s (silent) option to suppress unnecessary information.

If the mysqld server is stopped, you should use the --update-state option to tell myisamchk to mark the table as “checked.”

You have to repair only those tables for which myisamchk announces an error. For such tables, proceed to Stage 2.

If you get unexpected errors when checking (such as out of memory errors), or if myisamchk crashes, go to Stage 3.

Why It's Often Easier To Innovate In China Than In The United States

My most striking impression was that Chinese entrepreneurs had relatively unfettered access to cutting-edge technology, enabling start-ups to innovate while bootstrapping. Meanwhile, Western entrepreneurs often find themselves trapped in a spiderweb of IP frameworks, spending more money on lawyers than on tooling.
