Hello there, curious passer-by! I'm Tim, and I work here. Mostly, I help drive new improvements to Stack Overflow itself, and I also head up the effort to bring Stack Overflow into other languages. Or, basically, I got bored earning rep, got myself hired, and now spend most of my time on Meta.

Beyond that, I'm:

  • A husband and dad
  • A competent programmer
  • A world traveler
  • Not a teapot

If you need to reach me, it's tpost shift-2 stackoverflow, but please use this form for common support needs. Note, I do not use services such as Linkedin, please don't try to add me there, it just creates noise.

Word to the wise, also make sure group_concat_max_len is large enough to not truncate the results of the information schema query.

I've got it working now. Thanks again for a solid answer that also points me to things I should probably read up on.

The cross checking isn't an issue in this case, I'm going to give this a try now. Thank you for spending so much time on this!

@ypercube I noted that in my question. I can't change anything, I'm just trying to see if what I want to get is possible. (it's not my design).
