Learning LATEX

I’ll follow  ftp://ftp.ams.org/ams/doc/amsmath/short-math-guide.pdf guide in order to learn to use LATEX.

 

Summer project

I thought it would be a neat idea to push into my daily schedule a new task now that i’ m a bit loose.
I chose an 1hr/day summer project.
I started contributing to the messenger client i mostly used, which is in this case “emesene”.

Seems like a good way to make my first steps in python.

After reading the following article 
http://gigaom.com/cloud/facebook-trapped-in-mysql-fate-worse-than-death/

i became a bit sceptical about the uses of MySQL(innoDb), the only RDBMS that i am currently familiar with.

Popular alternatives are the following

PostgreSQL 

a free and open source post ingres ORDBMS

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PostgreSQL

MariaDb

a community driven branch of MySQL, much faster and optimized.

http://mariadb.org/

VoltDb

an ACID compliant RDBMS (licenced under GPLv3 for the community version)

http://voltdb.com/

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VoltDB

VoltDb seems very promising to me, worth giving it a try.

using google/bookmarks

Recently i’ve been searching for a way to safely manage my bookmarks. One of my requirements was to be able to store them online so that i could use them from any computer or operating system.

The features and the interface of google/bookmarks is very efficient, i’m starting to love it.
