Pirates of Pi-stance 
I've just cloned my data collections from MySQL for embedded / stand-alone use on a Raspberry Pi (as well as Android, Windows, OS/X, Linux, and ... uh ... well ... virtually everywhere else!)
--Even Microsoft is planing on supporting the 'Pi Platform!

Best Of All?


We will be using the data collections on everything from PHP & Python to Java and .NET: You've simply gotta love Sqlite3!

To celebrate, allow us to share a modern re-versing ;) of an ancient programming-platform celebratory song:


We've built a better platform
for your data-needs in general

For data bases vegetable, animal, and mineral

The OS handles CPUs
with multiplexed complexity;

Our C++ compiler has impressive functionality...!

The storage system's better than
something with an old 'nt,

You never have to bother checking out
a bit's odd-parity;

There isn't any reason
to install non-static floor matting;

The boot-point has capacity for external disk-formatting.

I feel compelled to mention
what I know to be a gloating point:

There's lots of speed in memory
for variables as floating-point,

Which shows for input vegetable, animal, and mineral

We've built a better platform
for our data-needs in general!



(Note: If one cannot pick-up the beat after the first two verses or so, the above was designed be sung to the tune of the "Modern Major General" from the "Pirates of Penzance" ;)


Enjoy the Journey!

Must-Have Developer GUI for SQLite? 
Downloaded version 1.2.2 of sqliteman (for sqlite3) on Ubuntu 14.05 LTS yesterday via the software center. Written in Qt, versions for Microsoft Windows & elsewhere are also available.

Decidedly for those who know SQL rather well, we found that sqliteman (official screen shot) is a must-have tool for those in-the-know. -Admins and software developers are the targeted audience.

For the novice, sqliteman would be perfect for those who have just learned the SQL basics of views, select statements, as well as table creation. One should also be aware of the shorter list of abbreviated data types.

Ultimately, I found that sqliteman's ability to allow us to keep a running list of select-and-run statement to be very addictive.

Surely the perfect tool for the SQLite and / or Python3 enthusiast - Keep up the good work!

Helicopter Attack 
It was Pope Innocent the 3rd who first noted that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

Whilst we can be confident that he was not talking about the Internet at the time (he lived in the 18th century ;), for the record I just wanted to let those whom might find that their site is being hijacked know about the quick fix.

Not Found

The requested URL /dom_s9k/helicopter-attack.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache Server at soft9000.com Port 80

Hacked as it was by obvious & rank noobs (i.e. they were unable to do anything else to my server and their date + time stamp allowed me to pinpoint their IP Address), by way of a mindless diversion this day I noted that Google Analytics had been telling me that allot of my pages were presently being 404'ed.

After looking at my .htaccess, I noted that the date was no where near when I had last messed with it's content. Indeed, since I had recently deleted the same for similar demonstrative reasons, I decided to blow the silly thing away, then re-add a new, access-constrained, .htaccess file in it's stead.


(original quote was in Latin - might have gotten it wrong ;)


So for the 'butinski who thought that it was being smart, please allow me to thank you for the opportunity to add yet another helpful blog entry to my site. Providing us with such fatuous & puerile diversions from time to time not only helps keep the day a little more interesting, but also allows us to make the Internet a better place for everyone else.


Cheers!
