TeleInterActive Networks Maintenance

Our TeleInterActive Networks hosting service, including these blogs and our customer sites, will be down from midnight tonight, until, hopefully, 4 a.m. Pacific time. The server in the midwest is being moved to a new facillity.

Thank you for your understanding.

Fire Brigade Parade Burlingame

We're at the Apple Store in Burlingame, and a parade of Fire Trucks is going by. There goes Half Moon Bay. Sirens blaring. Everyone waving. Lots of fun.

Now back to checking out the MacBookPro's.

Oracle Berkeley DB

Are you wondering whatever happened to Sleepycat's Open Source software Berkeley DB developer database since Oracle's purchase ? It is now known as
Oracle Berkeley DB. It still has three flavors:

  • Berkeley DB: A transactional storage engine for un-typed data in basic key/value data structures
  • Berkeley DB Java Edition: A pure Java version of Berkeley DB optimized for the Java environment
  • Berkeley DB XML: A native XML database with XQuery-based access to documents stored in containers and indexed based on their content

It is still open source. Oracle has released it under a dual license. Check out Oracle Berkeley DB site for more information.

MARVELit Dash Portal Solution

We offer a Dashboard solution that is based on the Apache Jetspeed portal and our unique charting portlets. Using Marvelit DASH - dashboards can be built very easily using the power of SQL and XML. end quotation

Take a look at their demo.

Stargate Indulgence

Today I did something that I haven't done in decades. Nothing. I veg'd all day long. [Well, I did laundry, but the machines do the heavy work there - doesn't count.] So, how did I occupy my time while being vegetative? I indulged my SG-1 addiction. I watched Stargate. SciFi's been rerunning the show since the beginning, and TiVo's been recording them.

I started with the Stargate movie, then SG-1 episodes 1 [Children of the Gods Part 1], 2 [Children of the Gods Part 2], 3 [Enemy Within], 100 [Wormhole X-treme] and the 200th episode [200] and even the SciFi Inside show about the 200th episode. What a great day. I've seen them all before, but it was a lot of fun to watch them this way, especially as the 100th and 200th episodes make fun of all that's gone before.

It's easy to indulge a Stargate addiction with TiVo. SciFi runs about 11 episodes a week [not counting repeats in a given week] plus local stations run the show and its spin-off Stargate Atlantis, about a season or two or three behind.

I hear that SciFi is NOT picking up season 11. That's just unconscionable. Not that I care if SciFi gets any ad revenue or not. The producers may continue with some direct to video scheme. Sign me up... As long as it's not locked into some silly DRM forcing me to watch it on a 2-inch screen. BitTorent to TiVo makes the most sense to me. B)

I think I'll unwind by watching a Stargate Atlantis, and maybe another SG-1.
