OurSQL Episode 28: Conferential Integrity

This week, we talk about the many conferences in the MySQL world - O'Reilly's MySQL Conference, Collaborate and Kaleidoscope

Some feedback from previous podcasts:
Percona *is* releasing a 5.5 version - http://www.mysqlperformanceblog.com/2010/12/20/mysql-5-5-8-and-percona-s...
Also, the performance schema is persistent (stored on disk) according to Giuseppe Maxia, the Datacharmer.
* Update 1/6/2011 14:17 Eastern time - according to Mark Leith, only the setup_ tables are persistent, so only some of the data makes it to disk and is persistent.

Ear candy:
mysql> SET GLOBAL init_connect='SET autocommit=0';
This works to set the init_connect variable dynamically (do not forget to also set it in /etc/my.cnf as well). However, the init_connect variable is NOT executed for users with the SUPER privilege.
