uhhhhhh my database class is having us design a simple web application with users and some other stuff and uhhhhh they want us to store the passwords in plaintext???
in case anyone was wondering why people in the real world still do that shit
@Miller_Geek @chr @oreolek MS SQL is a pretty good DB, you know? MySQL should have died with shared PHP hosting - its SQL implementation is quite sad to work in. I hear Pg is much nicer, but I've had the Pg DB for this mastodon server corrupt within the month I've been running it.
So I guess in my experience, the only DBs worth running at SQLite and MS SQL. (I've had it churn hard running SharePoint and it still keeps ticking even with power failures and heavy Lourdes.)
Calling MySQL/MariaDB on the same level as Pg or MSSQL is something I can't take seriously from experience trying to write queries for MariaDB though. Ask a DBA smarter than me (like, all of them) and they'll likely give you the same answer.
