meebome

Just added a meebome widget to my blog sidebar.

I’ve been using meebo for a while, now, as my primary IM “unifier”. ICQ, Y!IM, AIM, MSN… all on the same page.

I used to use gaim, and was mostly satisfied with it, but meebo allows me to forget about proxy and network settings regardless of where I’m using it.

Oracle SQL Developer 1.0 Released

It looks like Oracle’s Project Raptor has graduated and become SQL Developer 1.0.
I really don’t know what took Oracle so long to come up with their own tools. I’m somewhat surprised that they didn’t just purchase Quest Software (given their recent buying spree) and package TOAD with the database.

Regardless, Raptor SQL Developer is quite nice for my needs and a bargain to boot!

BTW: You can import your connections from an older Raptor install if you right-click the Connections tree item, select “Import Connections…”, and select [Raptor-Install]/jdev/system/oracle.onlinedb.11.0.0.36.49/IDEConnections.xml.

Unique Properties – Revisited

Back in August, I posted a simple Java utility for sorting out the definitive property value when a property is defined multiple times in a properties file. Here’s a simple Ruby script that does the same thing, but with far fewer bytes:


#Get filename
puts "Enter Properties File Name:"
fname = gets.strip
puts

# Create a unique collection of keys,
# skipping comments
propHash=Hash.new
File.readlines(fname).each do |line|
  if line =~ /^([^#.]+)[=,:](.+)/
    propHash[$1.rstrip] = $2.lstrip
  end
end

#output the results
propHash.keys.each do |k|
  puts "#{k}=" + propHash[k]
end

Is Raptor a TOAD-eater?

Oracle has released Project Raptor to Early Adopters.

I typically use TOAD when I need to do Oracle-specific DB tasks, like editing PL/SQL, running explain plans, etc. TOAD is a nice tool and has been around forever. But the full version of TOAD is far from being free, and the “free” version that they do offer is limited and annoying to download every couple months.

Raptor seems pretty feature-rich, with lots of built in “reports”, export options, and access to physical storage operations. Performance isn’t bad for a Swing app, either ;-P.

All-in-all, Raptor is pretty appealing, especially now that Oracle has released a free “Express” edition for smaller applications (an obvious attempt to lure in those projects that would otherwise be using MySQL or PostgreSQL).

BTW: Squirrel-SQL is a great tool for multiple database access (using JDBC drivers).

Ruby on an iPAQ Pocket PC

  1. Download SymbolicTools PocketConsole here.
  2. Download SymbolicTools PocketCMD here.
  3. Install PocketConsole and PocketCMD. Cradle the iPAQ. When install is complete, reboot/reset the device.
  4. Confirm that you have an operational command prompt by clicking the PocketCMD program icon:

  5. Download Ruby for wince binary here.
  6. Extract the ruby-mswince archive to a directory on your desktop PC.
  7. Create a root-level directory named ‘\ruby’ on the iPAQ.
  8. Copy the contents of the arm-ppc-wince directory (from the extracted archive) to the \ruby directory on the iPAQ.
  9. in PocketCMD, set the PATH environment variable to include \ruby\bin:

  10. Verify that Ruby works:

  11. Try to take over the world!

Million Dollar Idea?

The Million Dollar Home Page has been all over the news for the past few days.

I’m not sure if this idea is brilliant or just a flash-in-the-pan gimmick. Then again, how can it be a bad idea if it netted him almost $1 million so far.

The site says that it will be up for 5 years (guaranteed!), but I wonder what the T&Cs actually are. What happens if the site goes down or ir the host goes belly-up? Can pixel “owners” request refunds? Did the student pre-pay for the 5 years of hosting (at least $9.95/mo for 65,000 MB txfr times 5 years = $597, not including additional bandwidth, if needed)? Maybe the hosting provider gave him a deal: I’m sure this has given them a decent amount of publicity, too.

How many copy cat sites already exist?

Alas, poor sod: he’s gonna have a hefty income tax bill this year. Too bad he can’t spread it out over the 5 years.

Blog Template Changes

In anticipation of the New Year…
I’ve made some changes to my Blogger template. I was using a prefab template with some modifications.

Now, I’ve cleaned it up a bit, made some layout changes (e.g., no more rounded corner images), and moved the CSS rules to a separate file to reduce page load time.
