Robert Harvey decided to delete this answer of mine, and I have no freaking idea why.

None of the FAQ reasons seem to apply. So some sort of an explanation would be nice, as right now I have no idea what the reason might be.

The answer has been undeleted, however, I would still very much like to find out why it was deleted in the first place?

I honestly don't know how I missed that one.

The moderator dashboard only shows the first 100 characters or so of text, so the excerpt would have looked something like this:

Yes, it should work just fine. However, keep in mind that doing a COUNT(primary_key) usually gives better performance. So your above query would look like <wall of code ...

Really looks like a comment/conversation, from that perspective. Sorry about that.

  • thanks for the explaination.
