    They shouldn't do this, not fair on PSG to win it dirty, let PSG (PSG are the fucking good guys, Jesus Christ) try and win it and cancel it as soon as they get knocked out

    If PSG lose the final, hand them the losers medals on the podium, get the winning team to queue to the side of the podium and then have a bunch of lads come on the pitch,
    take the plinth apart and have whomever is presenting the trophy walk off down the tunnel with it


    ...I should probably be spending my time giving it the auld Indiana Jones on the ancient text of the database rather than this shite
    Who is this PSG of whom you speak? do you not mean 'Qatari sportswashing brand improvement project' FC?

      What's the betting on the Chauvin trial?

      Would be American news for the evening job if he walks.

            eehh...whole internet seems to be ignoring these rules from the past designed to fight fake rdbs that no longer exist

            Can a kindly database guru point me in the direction of a simple (with examples if possible) breakdown of the rules
            Codd helped come up with a few rule sets around databases. One set is concerned with how relational database management systems are implemented. I don't think is the rule set you are interested in.

            The rule set you are probably interested in, if the question is about designing a database for a dentist, are Codd's normalization rules, well Boyce-Codd's actually.

            Google how to normalize a database.

            Something like this. https://www.w3schools.in/dbms/database-normalization/

            Data normalizations is hugely important. Trying to write SQL against a dataset that isn't correctly normalized from the get go, is a massive pain in the hoop.

              I wish it was the normalisation rules wombat, that's all pretty simple imo
              It is indeed the twelve rules of what is relational
              The lecturers lecture on it is him basically repeating them and saying stuff like they are hard to understand, lazy bastard!

              Seems to me they were written for a time when cowboys pretended their product was relational but now it is all kind of in the code hence ignored
              Im sure it's relatively straight forward but was just looking for a simpler breakdown than the actual rules to follow

              I should have made that clearer, will edit, Cheers!

                    As I said, implementing the 12 (13) rules is the business of RDBMS designers like Microsoft, Oracle or the PostgreSQL Global Development Group. I certainly wouldn't be writing a RDBMS from scratch if I was throwing a database together for a Dentist. A better question might have been, compare and contrast how compliant a few major RDBMS implementations are with the rules.

                      Ya, that's what I thought myself but...
                      I need to prove my sql database fits the rules using queries etc
                      Probably easy enough but seems pointless and there is a reason all the youtube videos are cheap and in Hindi or history lessons

                      Ive an awful feeling given a couple of weeks i could write a better database course than him

                      Thanks for clearing that up a bit!

                                Are you actually developing an RDBMS from scratch or using an existing one? If the latter then you just have describe how that RDBMS achieves those things for you, which should be readily available in the docs. It's not really relevant to the design as the RDBMS won't allow you to break those rules. If the former then O_o that's a huge lump of work for a course project.

                                  Have to write some sql to prove the various rules, got my head around it pretty much now, was just looking for simplified version of the rules with maybe some examples

                                                    Evening all. I have a sad tale to relate about ggpoker - some of the fault may be mine, I'm somewhat confused at this stage. I'll try not to keep you too long...

                                                    Firstly, some of you will know I am a long-time lurker here, don't post very much. As I am a "senior" type of guy, I don't understand much of what you young lads do be on about, eg them oul Nft's and such like! So I am maybe confused about modern technological methods. Anyway, this is in the nature of a serious complaint/moan and I'd be interested to hear what people here think. And so, again before I get into detail I must confess I'm one of the crappiest poker players ever - pretty shit live, but really appalling online. You will know the sorry tale going back to c 2005 - only playing drunk, at levels way way beyond my competence, the occasional lucky strike but always ending in abject failure and excluding myself from sites etc. Which is absolutely fine, I always had the money to indulge and while I didn't like losing it, there were no sour grapes...
                                                    And so, during lock down I decided once again to donate my money to a group of fellow online players who I felt would really appreciate it! I duly rejoined ggpoker. We had a little discussion about previous accounts I had opened with them previously, but after some assiduous copying and posting of intimate and other personal details, I was cleared to once again join the merry throngs playing online on their site.

                                                    I stuck in 300 dollars in 2 separate deposits and I almost immediately struck lucky - a rare occurrence - over a few nights playing. I made a withdrawal request of 500 dollars back to my Visa, but nothing seemed to happen and so I soon pulled it back to my poker account and duly lost most of it. However I had a mini recovery and decided - definitely - to withdraw 150 dollars to my Visa. Nothing happened for a few days and so I decided to try and trace back through my gg account to see what happened. Well, it turned out my withdrawal had been sent from gg to my bank (AIB) who had rejected it because, my helpful phone-banking assistant said, gg had used a method - visa direct I think she said - to refund my money, which is not acceptable to AIB; and could I please ask ggpoker to use a different method to return monies to my VISA account. No one had told me about my 150 floating around in free space, anyway...

                                                    Well, sez I, I am sure I'm not the only Irish online player with ggpoker that uses VISA, so they (gg) must have other methods/networks/whatever to put monies back into accounts. So I texted their help/support people , explained what AIB had said, and asked could they have a look and sort things out. I would have assumed that a worldwide organisation like gg would be able to deal with a small issue like this...

                                                    I duly received a polite, if robotic/scripted reply saying they would ask their cashier section to look into things. In the meantime, my poker luck was holding and I had accumulated a further 900 dollars, of which 500 was required (by me) to go back to my visa. Are you detecting a sorry ending to this cos you'd be right. I had 500 dollars unused in my gg account - to be returned to my VISA- duly lost the other 400 - fair enough - and made a further withdrawal request for the 500 back to my VISA. At pretty much the same time as I did this request I got a longer, even more robotic/scripted note, written in a formal but bad version of English, telling me basically to fuck off and use a different deposit/withdrawal account. Of course my immediate response to this was to pull my 500 straight back into my poker account, and in a glorious but ultimately self-defeating blaze of glory, to donate that back to the poker world also.
                                                    You'll guess from the passive/aggressive nature of all of the above, that I am fucking furious and feel really badly treated. It appears that I can put as much money as I like into my gg online poker account, just don't ever try and withdraw any of it.
                                                    Sorry this is such a long post and I hope I don't come across as moaning (of course you do, sez the assembled masses!), but there seems to be some kind if bind in the above that doesn't make sense. I would have thought, if money could be deposited from a standard VISA card, it could just as easily be refunded to it...
                                                    Maybe it's me, I dunno. But there's a total of 1, 150 dollars that might have resided in my VISA account that I ended up donking away cos I could find no way to release it.

                                                            So the chairman of Glazer United has resigned. Abu Dhabi Sportswashing City have pulled out of the Super League as have Plaything of Murderous Russian Oligarch FC (London version). Fiat Corp FC also denying that their chairman has quit.

                                                            Quite the exciting day of football news tbf.

                                                                      Firstly, some of you will know I am a long-time lurker here, don't post very much. As I am a "senior" type of guy, I don't understand much of what you young lads do be on about, eg them oul Nft's and such like! So I am maybe confused about modern technological methods. Anyway, this is in the nature of a serious complaint/moan and I'd be interested to hear what people here think. And so, again before I get into detail I must confess I'm one of the crappiest poker players ever - pretty shit live, but really appalling online. You will know the sorry tale going back to c 2005 - only playing drunk, at levels way way beyond my competence, the occasional lucky strike but always ending in abject failure and excluding myself from sites etc. Which is absolutely fine, I always had the money to indulge and while I didn't like losing it, there were no sour grapes...
                                                                      And so, during lock down I decided once again to donate my money to a group of fellow online players who I felt would really appreciate it! I duly rejoined ggpoker. We had a little discussion about previous accounts I had opened with them previously, but after some assiduous copying and posting of intimate and other personal details, I was cleared to once again join the merry throngs playing online on their site.

                                                                      I stuck in 300 dollars in 2 separate deposits and I almost immediately struck lucky - a rare occurrence - over a few nights playing. I made a withdrawal request of 500 dollars back to my Visa, but nothing seemed to happen and so I soon pulled it back to my poker account and duly lost most of it. However I had a mini recovery and decided - definitely - to withdraw 150 dollars to my Visa. Nothing happened for a few days and so I decided to try and trace back through my gg account to see what happened. Well, it turned out my withdrawal had been sent from gg to my bank (AIB) who had rejected it because, my helpful phone-banking assistant said, gg had used a method - visa direct I think she said - to refund my money, which is not acceptable to AIB; and could I please ask ggpoker to use a different method to return monies to my VISA account. No one had told me about my 150 floating around in free space, anyway...

                                                                      Well, sez I, I am sure I'm not the only Irish online player with ggpoker that uses VISA, so they (gg) must have other methods/networks/whatever to put monies back into accounts. So I texted their help/support people , explained what AIB had said, and asked could they have a look and sort things out. I would have assumed that a worldwide organisation like gg would be able to deal with a small issue like this...

                                                                      I duly received a polite, if robotic/scripted reply saying they would ask their cashier section to look into things. In the meantime, my poker luck was holding and I had accumulated a further 900 dollars, of which 500 was required (by me) to go back to my visa. Are you detecting a sorry ending to this cos you'd be right. I had 500 dollars unused in my gg account - to be returned to my VISA- duly lost the other 400 - fair enough - and made a further withdrawal request for the 500 back to my VISA. At pretty much the same time as I did this request I got a longer, even more robotic/scripted note, written in a formal but bad version of English, telling me basically to fuck off and use a different deposit/withdrawal account. Of course my immediate response to this was to pull my 500 straight back into my poker account, and in a glorious but ultimately self-defeating blaze of glory, to donate that back to the poker world also.
                                                                      You'll guess from the passive/aggressive nature of all of the above, that I am fucking furious and feel really badly treated. It appears that I can put as much money as I like into my gg online poker account, just don't ever try and withdraw any of it.
                                                                      Sorry this is such a long post and I hope I don't come across as moaning (of course you do, sez the assembled masses!), but there seems to be some kind if bind in the above that doesn't make sense. I would have thought, if money could be deposited from a standard VISA card, it could just as easily be refunded to it...
                                                                      Maybe it's me, I dunno. But there's a total of 1, 150 dollars that might have resided in my VISA account that I ended up donking away cos I could find no way to release it. The money doesn't matter, but I feel as if I've been royally fucked over... By someone
                                                                      ​​​​​​.. GG? The bank? I dunno But I' m fuckin sorry I bothered me arse with the whole online thing once again. Ionapaul may be interested given his gg connection...

Now firstly I don't work in payments so can't 100% stand over what I'm about to write, BUT yes, GGPoker does have many different ways of withdrawing, but in a case where your preferred method of withdrawal isn't working (which is the credit card/bank's fault, not GG, for whatever that is worth - very little in most circumstances!), we simply have to ask a player to make another deposit using their next preferred withdrawal method, before that method can be used. This is down to anti-money laundering/financing of terror requirements (not a joke! bear with me), we need to be 100% sure that the money is going out to a genuine account associated with the player, rather than to some random account that could be literally anyone. Typically any withdrawal needs to go back to the last deposit method used. It sucks but that's how we and all other egaming outfits operate at present.

                                                                                          Sounds like you weren't helped very much by whomever responded to you from our support/payments team and I apologise for that. If you fancy playing a bit at GG without having to deposit again, send me a PM with your nickname and I'll send some freebies your way. If you win anything, you'll still have to deposit using a new payment method in order to be able to withdraw to that method again though, I can't help with that requirement unfortunately!

                                                                                                        Im sure it's relatively straight forward but was just looking for a simpler breakdown than the actual rules to follow

                                                                                                        I should have made that clearer, will edit, Cheers!

                                                                                                          Firstly, some of you will know I am a long-time lurker here, don't post very much. As I am a "senior" type of guy, I don't understand much of what you young lads do be on about, eg them oul Nft's and such like! So I am maybe confused about modern technological methods. Anyway, this is in the nature of a serious complaint/moan and I'd be interested to hear what people here think. And so, again before I get into detail I must confess I'm one of the crappiest poker players ever - pretty shit live, but really appalling online. You will know the sorry tale going back to c 2005 - only playing drunk, at levels way way beyond my competence, the occasional lucky strike but always ending in abject failure and excluding myself from sites etc. Which is absolutely fine, I always had the money to indulge and while I didn't like losing it, there were no sour grapes...
                                                                                                          And so, during lock down I decided once again to donate my money to a group of fellow online players who I felt would really appreciate it! I duly rejoined ggpoker. We had a little discussion about previous accounts I had opened with them previously, but after some assiduous copying and posting of intimate and other personal details, I was cleared to once again join the merry throngs playing online on their site.

                                                                                                          I stuck in 300 dollars in 2 separate deposits and I almost immediately struck lucky - a rare occurrence - over a few nights playing. I made a withdrawal request of 500 dollars back to my Visa, but nothing seemed to happen and so I soon pulled it back to my poker account and duly lost most of it. However I had a mini recovery and decided - definitely - to withdraw 150 dollars to my Visa. Nothing happened for a few days and so I decided to try and trace back through my gg account to see what happened. Well, it turned out my withdrawal had been sent from gg to my bank (AIB) who had rejected it because, my helpful phone-banking assistant said, gg had used a method - visa direct I think she said - to refund my money, which is not acceptable to AIB; and could I please ask ggpoker to use a different method to return monies to my VISA account. No one had told me about my 150 floating around in free space, anyway...

                                                                                                          Well, sez I, I am sure I'm not the only Irish online player with ggpoker that uses VISA, so they (gg) must have other methods/networks/whatever to put monies back into accounts. So I texted their help/support people , explained what AIB had said, and asked could they have a look and sort things out. I would have assumed that a worldwide organisation like gg would be able to deal with a small issue like this...

                                                                                                          I duly received a polite, if robotic/scripted reply saying they would ask their cashier section to look into things. In the meantime, my poker luck was holding and I had accumulated a further 900 dollars, of which 500 was required (by me) to go back to my visa. Are you detecting a sorry ending to this cos you'd be right. I had 500 dollars unused in my gg account - to be returned to my VISA- duly lost the other 400 - fair enough - and made a further withdrawal request for the 500 back to my VISA. At pretty much the same time as I did this request I got a longer, even more robotic/scripted note, written in a formal but bad version of English, telling me basically to fuck off and use a different deposit/withdrawal account. Of course my immediate response to this was to pull my 500 straight back into my poker account, and in a glorious but ultimately self-defeating blaze of glory, to donate that back to the poker world also.
                                                                                                          You'll guess from the passive/aggressive nature of all of the above, that I am fucking furious and feel really badly treated. It appears that I can put as much money as I like into my gg online poker account, just don't ever try and withdraw any of it.
                                                                                                          Sorry this is such a long post and I hope I don't come across as moaning (of course you do, sez the assembled masses!), but there seems to be some kind if bind in the above that doesn't make sense. I would have thought, if money could be deposited from a standard VISA card, it could just as easily be refunded to it...
                                                                                                          Maybe it's me, I dunno. But there's a total of 1, 150 dollars that might have resided in my VISA account that I ended up donking away cos I could find no way to release it. The money doesn't matter, but I feel as if I've been royally fucked over... By someone
                                                                                                          ​​​​​​.. GG? The bank? I dunno But I' m fuckin sorry I bothered me arse with the whole online thing once again. Ionapaul may be interested given his gg connection...
                                                                                                          ​​​ Apologies for any typos or discrepancies in the above, but you get my point. I think I have 10 dollars left in my gg account which will go you know where...
                                                                                                          Not sure if this will help but I had this very issue with my 1st withdrawal from GG a couple of weeks ago also to AIB Visa, all I done was switch from dollar to euro in the cashier and funds hit my bank account in a couple of days, done the same thing only last weekend and no problem either.
                                                                                                          Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

I actually tried to change my withdrawal currency in the cashier from dollars to euro but it just defaulted to dollars again? Any particular method you used to look for euros?
                                                                                                                  Maybe if I used euros as my playing currency rather than dollars? Thanks you very much for that very helpful info.

                                                                                                                  Ionapaul - I really appreciate your gentlemanly response, I wasn't intending to get at you in any way, but was hoping you would notice my post and acknowledge it - which you did. You are a decent dude. Given that I feel I might have "cracked" some of the lower-level cash games on GG (lol - the eternal delusions of the occasional poker player !!!) I would love to go back into the fray again, but I really cant face the thoughts of setting up a Skrill (dafuck?) or Neteller or some other new type of account - I'm too old and set in me ways to be at that! I know, I know...but anyway.

                                                                                                                  Do you think Ionapaul if I just lodged some more money and stipulate I want to play in eur rather than dollars, that might do the trick re refunding winnings straight back to my VISA? Seems to have worked for wicklowp above? If I thought that would work I'd get right back at it. Maybe you could ask someone there for me?

                                                                                                                  I do accept that there are rules of conduct which apply to everyone and I just didnt realise that refund thing was one of them, but there you go. Its very kind of you to offer me some freebies but to be honest, say if I won with them? How would I get me lll-gotten gains ? For what its worth I really enjoyed the site, its easy to play and nice little surprise extras like sometimes getting a few bob for hitting a flush etc, so I really wouldnt need much encouragement to jump back in...
                                                                                                                  I actually came on here this morning to delete my post from last night, which was aided by a few drinkies (I betcha no-one guessed - ahem !!!) but am delighted to see the kind and supportive comments from people - makes me feel slightly less of an idiot, thanks all.

                                                                                                                  OK, if I could be reassured that the "wicklow way" works, I'd be straight back at it, if I could get some more reassurance on that. Once again, thanks to all...

It’s growing every year and with the growth in the wimmins game , it will remain the biggest and possibly the fastest growing sport in the next few years.
                                                                                                                    When you say disappeared up it’s own arse. I can’t think of a sport that has not done similar. The Olympic games itself needs a new sport -> dodging/passing the juice test. The Champions League games are massively entertaining , though it does require some tweeks to eliminate the nothing matches. In footballs favour it seems drugs doesn’t seem to be a big issue.

                                                                                                                    In itself football is a great game. I for one don’t feel abused by the accounting practices. I’d spend more on an overpriced meal in Dublin than I would to attend a PL game (although it’s been a while for both) . To it’s credit Football stood up to the ultimate slap in the face, the hand picking of favoured clubs to play in a league with no consequences for defeat other than the outrage of fans. I bet you guys will continue to watch it as it plays out from within it’s own bowels.
                                                                                                                    Maybe give it credit this week for at least drawing a line against the ultimate corporate greed .
