PODCAST: “Too Jewish with Rabbi Sam Cohon and Friends” RSS feed working again

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.

Can’t find a working RSS feed for the “Too Jewish with Rabbi Cohon” podcast? Here is a working RSS feed that is updated every Monday morning!

Native support of SQLite in Sybase PowerBuilder and PowerDesigner?

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:

  1. staging for mass data imports/exports/conversions
  2. local application ‘cache’ for large data sets
  3. 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 wish Sybase would 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
