comment Why doesn't Google Chrome suggest saved usernames in a drop-down menu?
Please investigate a bit more and update your question: what do you see, what do you expect? For me it surely includes results that Google does not know about (like URLs to non-public development servers, or simple localhost URLs). (I assume you're not running some incognito mode?)

comment Why doesn't Google Chrome suggest saved usernames in a drop-down menu?
Both work for me (user names on double click), and always have (latest Chrome on a Mac). Also, please don't ask "why", but rewrite to ask for "how", and limit to one question per post, so: combine the two into one and make the title summarize that.

@Samir, php.net/manual/en/reserved.variables.server.php or <?php echo file_get_contents('http://ip.appspot.com/'); ?> might help.

comment Using column alias in WHERE clause of MySQL query produces an error
A few examples: some claim that for them select @code:=sum(2), 2*@code works in MySQL 5.5, but for me in 5.6 the second column yields NULL on first invocation, and returns 2 times the previous result when run again. Interesting enough, both select @code:=2, 2*@code and select @code:=rand(), 2*@code do seem to work in my 5.6 (today). But those are indeed writing and reading in the SELECT clause; in your case you're setting it in WHERE.

Doesn't this conflict with the documentation that says "As a general rule, you should never assign a value to a user variable and read the value within the same statement. You might get the results you expect, but this is not guaranteed."?

comment MySQL - Define a variable within select and use it within the same select
I very much expect @z:=someProcedure(item), 2*@z working above is just a happy coincidence.

comment MySQL - Define a variable within select and use it within the same select
No, this does not work in my MySQL 5.6 setup; the second column yields NULL on first invocation, and returns 2 times the previous result if run again, which might fool one into thinking it did work. Now, interesting enough, both select @code:=2, 2*@code and select @code:=rand(), 2*@code; do work in the same installation (today). So, given the documentation (see Gordon's answer), I'd not rely on this to return some defined result.

comment Can cross-posts actually be valuable to two communities, with the exception of being worded identically?
And if the multi-posted questions get different answers, then the asker is also wasting the time of people who have the same question, as now the answers are spread across two sites.

You'll never know, unless you add a questionnaire to your profile ;-)

Bummer, now you've broken your test by making people look at your profile for different reasons.
