Maxine is now running on mariadb

So back when I was working for MySQL AB as support manager for MaxDB, I created an IRC bot to help manage the #maxdb channel on Freenode. We didn’t get a lot of traffic, and Daniel De Graaf mentioned that he could use a bot to help manage some iptables factoids over on #netfilter. So I had her join. He taught her all sorts of interesting things. She stored these factoids in a MySQL database. I have just migrated from MySQL to MariaDB which I compiled from source. Here are the packages:

cjac@mariadb:~$ mysql -u root -p
Enter password: 
Welcome to the MariaDB monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.

MariaDB [(none)]> use maxine;

You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A

Database changed
MariaDB [maxine]> 
15:22 < cj> maxine: iptables?
15:22 < maxine> hmmm... iptables is a generic table structure for the 
                definition of rulesets. Each rule within a chain consists of a 
                number of classifiers (iptables matches) and one optional 
                connected action (iptables target).
