Sunday. Spent the day reading comments on different linux web sites. First Slashdot, the Linux.com, and then finally MaximumLinux.org. "Linux rulez. Down with the evil OS empire." Well, it's something to do on a sunday i guess. I also packed up my stuff for the forthcoming move and did some cleaning. Then I thought, wow, I haven't posted to advogato in a long time, so i should go there and write about how i did some cleaning and i like, surfed the web n' shit.

I've been struggling with "relational" databases at work. MySQL doesn't have a UNION statement, so you need to create a temporary table to achieve the same effect. Hrm.

Z SQL Methods have their own cache settings seperate from the RAM Cache Manager. Which is no fun. I submitted a feature request for that. My contribution to open source for the week, "give us more features!"

Oh yeah, I also tried out EasyTag, a really cool ID3 tag editor. This way when I pull down albums from audio galaxy, I can go to a site like discogs.com and get the track data and add it. Then all my songs are easily sortable in iTunes. Except EasyTag seems to have trouble writting tags to certain mp3s. Maybe it has something to do with ID3 v2?
