ACM – Beyond Relational Databases Interesting ACM article pointing out some of the obvious requirements of new applications and the weaknesses of RDBMs to fill those needs. The artcile could easily have gone into greater depth on how this niche is being filled. I personally have experience with a variation of B+ trees that is being used in graphical databases for FPS games. One of the sentences that stuck out was “The database must also avoid making decisions about network protocols.” Interesting observation. The only problem I face with this higher level of database abstration is the increased complexity of installation, tweak and management that each additional feature adds to the system. Thanks Simple Thoughts

SACK: Simple Ajax Code Kit

responses

The Simple Ajax Code Kit (SACK) is a javascript library that takes the hassle out of AJAX programming. This could be especially useful to any WordPress Plugin authors out there that don’t want to spend time messing around with code that isn’t directly to do with their plugin. Implementation is as simple as three lines of code so it makes your code look a lot neater as well. Key features are: Simple and light to implement. Addresses security issues that toolkits such as SAJAX have. Handles international strings (UTF-8). Full documentation is available at the link above, and it will soon be part of other plugins such as WordPress: Touched. Enjoy, I hope you find it very useful.

Twilight: Fade Anything is an implementation of the popular, pretty, and generally kick-ass Fade Anything Technique (FAT) for WordPress, basically it allows you to implement this effect simply without editing templates, always useful for anyone who doesn’t want to have to change all the code when they change their look. Twilight: Fade Anything also adds a pulse effect in addition to the default fade. Implementation is as simple as making sure the element has an id and a class of fade or pulse. A demo is available on the plugin’s homepage. Hopefully more plugins will start using this useful technique to draw a users attention to something. It is already implemented in Twilight: AutoSave.

Rrdtool Server Statistics: Since some people have show interest in using Rrdtool that I had mentioned in the previous post, here is a good tutorial and example on how to use it and customize it for your own use. I have written my own scripts to interface into the Round Robin Database and collect and store information. I am using some of the code from the PHP display files mentioned in this tutorial. If you do end up using their code, please find a way to say thank you to the author.

WinBinder: PHP to Win32 Use Winbinder to convert your PHP scripts into native Windows applications. Oh, the possibilities! (PS: for hard core programmers, the non-OO nature of Winbind limits possibilites and makes the compiled programs kludgy, but the apps are free of any framework requirements and/or libraries. Quick prototyping and itch-scratch development would serve a great purpose)

WP Plugin Dependency: CMC 1.5

WP Plugin Dependency: CMC 1.5: Interesting idea. This developer has built dependancy into their plugin to be forwards compatible with any other “click counter” type plugins that might be developed. I wonder if we could write in some hooks or triggers that would serially list defined functions and classes. Then a plugin developer would just check this list for the function that they want to define, and if not found, redefine/redeclare it. Same could go for variable names, though that could become overwhelming and resource hogging. [EDIT] On second thought, an easier method would be to check every function/class for pre-definition before declaring/defining it as a rule (which is what I do outside of PHP)
