Started in 1980 with BASIC on a Sinclair ZX80. Various flavours of BASIC later, went to Uni and did a final year project using a dynamically assigned 48 processor array (Transputers - who remembers them?) to calculate fractals, stint in support, LAMP stack coder from 2004, never looked back.

Kids nowadays eh? They've got it easy! GUI? I'd have killed for a GUI! We had to code on clay tablets

comment How to create a linked mysql database
To try speeding up, add an index on the timestamp field. It'll increase storage requirements but speed up your query. Also, as @FélixGagnon-Grenier said, if it's taking 10 hours to run, you have other problems that you need to fix

comment PHP Check if multiple conditions are true
Your answer is very confusing. You never take into account what would happen if both iron and gold are above 500. Your level checking of gold and iron in two different orders is redundant (remove all the brackets and you're left with a simple set of or conditions) and you should be checking for < rather than >. You should check for the success first (gold and iron both above 500) and then, if this fails, check which ones failed.

comment PHP Check if multiple conditions are true
If there are more commodities to check then hold them in an array. Hold the failure levels in another array. You can then use a loop to check for whether the current level is greater than the failure level and process accordingly

comment how to get the value of next autoincrements in php for mysql
The thing is that the mysql_ functions have been deprecated for a while and a move to PDO or mysqli_ is the best way to go. Using either will give you the ability to use prepared statements which negate the need to escape passed data. PDO also gives you a layer of abstraction so if you decide to move to another DB platform, it will make things a bit easier. I found PDO easier to get along with but it's a matter of personal choice
