Concurrency and synchronisation in POSIX Bourne shell

It seems like ages ago now that I found my customer had a process that connected to hundreds of Oracle databases to run predefined SQL for health checks. These databases were hosted all over the world and the SQL could take up to fifteen minutes to complete for a single database (with huge amounts of TNS timeouts). The end result was a CSV file that was ultimately formatted into a spreadsheet to provide management information. It took about a day to obtain this final result.

I thought there was a better way.

Drupal 6 to 7 upgrade: "PHP Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in /usr/share/drupal7/includes/common.inc"

The scenario is a Drupal 6 website running on Debian GNU/Linux current stable is upgraded to Drupal 7 from backports in order to test its behaviour once the new Debian stable is released and Drupal 6 becomes unavailable.

On the Drupal 6 website there is a menu link created as a short-cut to log a user in and take them to the home page. This hides away the huge login block.
