Subject maximum myid?
Date Thu, 02 Sep 2010 20:45:11 GMT
Can the server id in the myid field be any valid long value?  I'm 
interested in generating, rather than pre-assigning, a unique id for 
every server, so my current plan is to convert the server's IP address 
into a 32-bit integer, and use the decimal, ASCII representation of that 
integer for the myid field.  Can anyone think of a reason not to do 
this?  For example, if the code ever uses the id as an index into an 
array, that would probably be bad.
