comment MySQL Replication without stopping master
@RolandoMySQLDBA: For Approach #1, what happens if the dump takes many hours to make, but the master database continues to change while the dump is being made? Is mysqldump "smart" enough to ensure that the dump only contains the data that was present before the dump was initiated?

Note that the final two rules can be consolidated into one: #navigation li + li:before { content: " | "; }

comment Variable as the property name in a JavaScript object literal?
+1 for explicitly mentioning that there is no way to do this within an object literal. (That's the reason we're all here, isn't it?)

comment Tetris-ing an array
Am I the only one that (awesomeness notwithstanding) thinks "testrising" is not the right word for this?

comment PHP - How do I get `<?php the_content(); ?>` as a string or turn it into a string
While this is likely the best approach, note that get_the_content() is not simply the_content() with the content returned instead of printed. One important difference is that get_the_content() does not filter the content. So, for example, if you use shortcodes to embed videos, contact forms, etc., they will not work by default with this approach. You'll also want to run apply_filters("the_content", ...) on the content. More info from the WP Codex: codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/…

comment WordPress sharding: which multi-DB plugin to use?
Perhaps this? "HyperDB allows you to split database writes and reads and assign each to an array of servers."(codex.wordpress.org/HyperDB#Replication)

comment WordPress sharding: which multi-DB plugin to use?
This sounds like a great option, but can you explain a little more about how you would go about accomplishing this? (i.e. How to configure WP such that writes go to the master and reads go to one of the slaves) Is there a plugin that can assist with this? Or is it DB-level configuration/some other tool?

Fantastic. Why is this not the accepted answer, @koen?

comment Is written "Canadian English" closer to "American English" or "British English"?
One resource that made the decision firm in my mind is the comments at searchenginepeople.com/blog/…. It appears that 1. Not even Canadians agree on how to spell things, and 2. Full US English spellings are tolerated in Canada, and even often used by Canadians themselves. As an American (and not a Brit), it's much easier for me to use US English spellings, so it's kind of a slam dunk. For our needs, written US English is a better fit than written UK English for a Canadian market.

Also, can the downvoter shed some light on what's wrong with my question? I've been on the SO network for years, and as far as I can tell, the question is formulated appropriately for a SO site, and this seems to be the most appropriate SO site in the network. I'm eager to "fit in" here if my question was inappropriate somehow, please provide me with feedback.
