Managing LS_COLORS 
While it is nice to have a colorized console, the default colors of 'light blue on green' for executable directories is unable to be read by anyone in my native hemisphere:


For those whom might want to change these default colors, two approaches to getting back to basics are possible.

Can the Colors

The first option is to simply junk the colorization all-together.

On Ubuntu and elsewhere, we can return to the 1970's by simply changing the alias from '--color=auto' to '--color=never' in our session-starting ~/.bashrc file.

Mod the Colors

The next option is to simply modify the colors. In this case, the offensive color selection is managed by ow=. To change it, simply add
LS_COLORS=$LS_COLORS'ow=0;93:' ; export LS_COLORS
to the end of your ~/.bashrc file:

For more information, you might also wish to see if 'dircolors' is part of your 'distro:

export LS_COLORS

Other 'Distros

Better still, using `dircolors -p > .dir_colors` in our home directory SHOULD help allot (the omission was a performance decision), but did not help at-all on Ubuntu.

If it worked, then changing 'OTHER_WRITABLE 34;42' in the new .dir_colors would modify the color in question to something like 01;33 -- a setting that most homosapiens could read.

NOTE: As usual, please understand that one will have to exit any existing sessions so as to re-apply any .bahsrc changes.

Enjoy the journey,

New Project: SQLMate 
Well, here we code again ...

One might have noted that I am somewhat obsessed with SQLite at the moment ... and for good reason: From Android to Big Data, we are using SQLite on every 'conceivable.

So when it came time for me to mass-generate a few hundred tables & DAO's recently, I decided to write yet another source code generator.

See the related link (below) for a tad more information.

DIY SQLite Videos ... and Inspiration? 

Where does it come from?

No matter what we believe sparks our brain-joy, surely we all can understand how inspiring words from others can help "make our day"?

So as I set my hand to sharing a few videos designed to help others use SQLite, when it came time to select a set of non-trivial data for demonstrating SQL data-management techniques, I was inspired to use the data from our own Mighty Maxims Project.

Almost forgetting that I also have a Mighty Maxims Book (sales have been "that good" ;-) here is our video Playlist.

So if you would like to learn how to use SQL, as well as SQLite, enjoy our free videos... I'll be glad you did! (lol)

And if you "like" and / or purchase the book, I'll SURELY know who you are (i.e. "THANKS MOM" ;)

Enjoy the Journey,
