Coupla Howtos: SQLite & NcFTP

Filed under
HowTos

Everyone knows about open source database giants such as MySQL and PostgreSQL; these free SQL database servers are commonly used by Web applications and other programs. For some uses, however, large database systems like this are overkill. If you need a simple, lightweight SQL database, look no further than SQLite.

Use SQLite for a simple, lightweight database option.


There's nothing quite as painful as watching large files download over slow connections. And it's even worse when it's 9 PM, you're the only one left in the office, and you can't leave until your entire file upload or download is complete.

Fortunately, there is a solution to this unhappy state of affairs. You can use the NcFTP suite of file transfer tools to automate your file transfer, allowing you to go home, catch a movie, have a good night's sleep, and come back in the morning to find your work complete.

Automate your FTP Transfers with NcFTP and improve your efficiency.

Opera for Linux to Get a Stable Version Soon

The Opera browser is now based on Chromium and this simple fact has delayed the release of a stable Linux version for more than a year. Now, the Linux platform will finally get a release and some final touches have been made to the client. The developers have improved a number of features that are already available in the browser. For example, users will not be able to drop a PDF file in browser tab that already has a similar file opened, deleting the entries in History now works as it should, the correct font is used all the time, and the new Bookmark feature that has been recently made available has been improved.
