First Blog for the Year

01/15/06 | by Clarise | Categories: Personal

Sorry all for not blogging. Yes, I'm back from my trip to Melbourne. But, I am in New Jersey right now. I am sure I will get to blog about my Australia trip to satisfy the requests out there. Hopefully, I'll get to do that when I get back from this New Jersey trip.

It is a cold night here in Princeton, New Jersey. Snow is in the ground. We arrived late at the hotel, almost midnight. The flight was very delayed.

Anyway, it is early morn here and I promise to find time to blog again. &#59;D

Ingres and Enterprise Acceptance

12/01/05 | by Clarise | Categories: Computers and Internet, Open Source, software, technology, Database

Ingres is one of the early relational databases. For those who have been working on relational databases for some time, Ingres has a reputation for being a mature database. When Ingres became an Open Source database, it has made the choice for Open Source databases interesting.

Last November, Computer Associates International, Inc. and a private equity firm, Garnett & Helfrich Capital announced a partnership to divest CA’s Ingres open source database unit into an independent corporate entity, Ingres Corporation.

Ingres Corporation also announced its Management Team including the addition of former Veritas Software executives.

Will Ingres be a key force in enabling the enterprise acceptance of Open Source Databases?

 

Comparison of Six BI Products

11/30/05 | by Clarise | Categories: Information Managment, Computers and Internet, technology

I found an interesting article last night from Network Computing. The article, Business Intelligence Suites Gold Standard BI compares 6 Business Intelligence products - Actuate, Applix, Cognos, Information Builders, Microsoft and MicroStrategy. Using Network Computing's corporate data stored in Oracle9i, the products were evaluated based on their ability to leverage corporate infrastructure, including using Active Directory 2000 as an authentication source and Exchange 2000 for e-mail distribution of reports.

For those involved with Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing, it is an article worth reading.

Digital Watermark using Digimarc

11/22/05 | by Clarise | Categories: On the web, Photos

We are working on a Content Management System for a customer and we are applying Digital Watermark to protect the customer's photos from unlicensed use. We are using Digimarc MyPictureMarc™.

It has been a frustrating experience for me since the embedded digital mark keeps on disappearing. I embed the digital mark, save and close. When I reopen the file, the digital mark is gone. It does not happen on all the photos but only some of it. It seems like the watermark does not survive at all.

The photos (from screen shots) below should illustrate my point:

Photo saved. Notice the © symbol in the filename - ©HappyValley1.jpg when it was opened by JASC PaintshopPro

Closed the file and re-opened.... Digimarc Gone!

We are using an older version of JASC PainshopPro Version 7.04 so the current downloadable Digimarc Plugin does not work. (Separate issue opened with Digimarc). So, we are using the Digimarc interface that comes with our version, seen below:

Another weird thing: Using Digimarc MyPictureMarc Reader, the file: 37oakrd11170303.jpg does not have the digimarc sign.

Opening it up in JASC,:

the © symbol is not there. But if one reads the digimarc, it is there:

These are my Digimarc woes ... XX(

I wrote Digimarc support to see why this is happening. Keep posted....
