SQLite on Java

February 12, 2010
tags: ,

I’ve been poking and prodding a pet project of mine for while now which I’ve designed for keeping track of recipes. Problem with it is I’ve written it to depend on my MySQL server (I never thought about sharing it apparently while developing it). So now I’ve decided to try porting the database end to SQLite. Right now, I’m only familiar with MySQL and Oracle.

Anyhow, I’ve stumbled upon SQLiteJDBC, and I think I will be giving this a try for my port. Wish me luck, and hints and tips are welcome!


Gangster Fun

I’ve always been one for hunting down under-appreciated artists, and I think the Michigan (I believe that’s where they’re from) ska band Gangster Fun is definitely a good example of under-appreciated talent.

Night of the Living Stove

Actually, it was Gangster Fun that got me interested in the ska genre to begin with by their humorous lyrics and crazy melodies.

Taishou Yakyuu Musume

November 7, 2009

Taisho Yakyuu Musume, that’s Taisho-era (1912-1926) Baseball Girls.  The list of voice actors for this show is definitely solid, including Mamiko Noto and Yui Makino; the animation, while not the best I’ve seen, is also pretty nice.  So why is no one paying any attention to the show?

ADV’s Dead, what’s to come of Sentai Filmworks releases?

September 21, 2009

Its been on the Internet for a while now but I wanted to assume it was only rumor.  I’ve got a number of anime from them, sad to see the effects of the economy is now hitting the anime industry.

Houston-based ADV Films is officially closed; they have sold their assets to five other companies.

This leaves me asking, Sentai Filmworks was presently working on Clannad ~After Story~, as ADV Films was to be the distributor, as they were with the first season of Clannad.  Who will distrbute the new works? “Sentai Filmworks” itself is a bit of a ghost term which is hard to define. Who is Sentai Filmworks?  They have no official looking results that show up on Google, only news of their relations with distributers.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2009)

September 13, 2009

I’ve watched every new episode in this incarnation of Haruhi including all of the Endless Eight arc. I was pretty excited when I originally heard there’d be fourteen new episodes of Haruhi. Too bad eight of those episodes were the same.

Hank Rearden and Neon Genesis

September 12, 2009

I’ve wanted to read Atlas Shrugged for a long time. I really don’t even remember the first reason why. I can say one reason is because I enjoyed Ayn Rand’s Anthem. Anyhow, over the months of this summer, I kept trying to get into the book but I managed to get distracted by other things and would forget my progress in the book.
