I’m basically asking that if someone managed to exfiltrate the Census database and the name linkage DB, how big a task is merging them?

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@bmmsmum @hughriminton @dobes That’s not my reason for requesting a paper form. It’s removing the over-the-internet bit from the workflow.

via TweetDeck in reply to bmmsmum

Hey database performance folk, hashing 24 million name+DoB+X records, and finding the matching hash in another DB. How long? @troyhunt?

via TweetDeck

@bmmsmum @hughriminton @dobes “Separate database” can become “one database” by executing a few lines of program code and take just minutes.

via TweetDeck in reply to bmmsmum

@franksting @jplonie I’m a big fan of the singular “they”.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@bmmsmum @hughriminton @dobes Yes, and then the top of the form was tear-off. Now, IDs will be kept with data for 4 years, maybe longer.
