Meet Carla Shroder's New Favorite GUI-Textmode Hybrid Shell, Xiki

brer_rabbit Re:Not convinced (176 comments)

I'm all for the natural language approach. I'm holding off til I can say something like "give me a histogram of all occurences of this regex across all files in subdirectory X....". Til that time it's a pipeline of grep/sort/uniq.

Sony Thinks Blu-ray Will Sell Like DVDs by Year End

brer_rabbit waiting for a carousel blu-ray player (434 comments)

I'm waiting for a carousel player. Having a 5-disc carousel DVD player is great: new Netflix dvd shows up, throw it in the player and it's queued up ready to go.

AudioDBI and UML

brer_rabbit brer_rabbit writes  |  more than 10 years ago Being unemployed for a long while now, I've been taking this extension class from the University of Washington on UML to keep my skills at par with the rest of the working world. I'm not quite sure what got me intersted in UML, that's probably the subject of a different journal entry.

Anyway, I've had this perl module I wrote awhile back for object persistence of song metadata. Yeah, it's not a general purpose persistence module, but it could be without much hacking. I think it's a pretty kick ass module, you can easily search for songs, artists, genres, etc etc without ever knowing a single line of SQL. But if you do know SQL, it inherits/extends from perl's DBI, so you've got all that power available too.

So I've put together some UML diagrams for AudioDBI cause I think AudioDBI is the cat's ass. And this is my journal so I can pitch the bitch if I like. So if you're a perl d00d, and have an itch for messing with song metadata within your program, or more generally, if you need object persistence, check it out.
