A while ago I wrote a Perl script that would create a RSS feed so I could listen to the podcast outside of iTunes (e.g. Miro). It stopped a few months back when I moved servers. It’s working again.
What I would love to see is native support for SQLite. http://www.sqlite.org
It is the most installed embedded database on the planet hands down. Don’t believe me? You know that Firefox web browser, Thunderbird newsreader, most Adobe products, Miro, etc all have it embedded? – reference http://www.sqlite.org/mostdeployed.html
We use it extensively at work as:
- staging for mass data imports/exports/conversions
- local application ‘cache’ for large data sets
- projects that don’t require all the features of Sybase ASE (or Oracle for that matter)
One of the best features is that the database itself in platform independent… copy the db on to AIX from your Windows box … then on to your old Amiga … then on to your windows mobile device. Getting the point?
I really wishwould make it so that the Sybase ASE databases were truly platform and character set/sort order independent… but that is in another dream
Not a blurb in the PowerDesigner/PowerBuilder manuals or anything
