ERA & Federer

ERA is amazing. Serves the purpose of having to catalogue your stuff very well. A Huge round of applause & thanks to louiswu, its creator, for giving it to me before what shall I say, releasing it on his website & for making it . I'm sure he'll be completely modest & all, so I thought I'll tell the world about ERA :) Oh & I've started tweaking it a bit...

Got Shock & Mutation by Robin Cook, from the ERA guy (Nice name). Its very hard to have a book & not read it (unless its something like Distributed Systems or Linux Kernel Internals) so I've started out with Shock.

I don't have a tarred gzipped version of j2sdk, which I need for Gentoo, so managing without Java support on Firebird for now. Launchcast is wonderful, but won't run on non-IE browsers, which so TOTALLY sucks. I'm down to trying emulators now...

Finally setup MySQL & phpMyAdmin on Gentoo, to get ERA working. Was procrastinating that for quite sometime. Roger Federer's match was interesting to watch, he beat David Nalbandian 3 sets to 1. I slept halfway through the match..& then watched the rest of the match along with Enemy At The Gates.

ERA = Easy Retrieval Archiver. To keep it short, reads from a specified path & dumps all the filenames into a database, from where you can search for what you need later on. Makes searching for stuff you have on CD very easy. Enter the contents into ERA, mark the archive id on the CD & your done. Search for say j2sdk-1.4.2.tar.gz & it throws up the archives where its present. Also has perl-style regexp searching & all...

Mutation...
Mutation makes for some great reading. Psycho stuff.

Yet to read Shock though...

Re: Mutation...
Don't you think just about all his books after chromosome 6 have just plain sucked?

I liked Acceptable Risk a lot. Ah, those were the good ole days. Robin Cook is a bit passe nowadays.

Re:
No Luck. It sits on my Taksbar & launches IE. So.... no luck. AFAIK & after Googling, the only way iss to run it thru CrossOver on Linux, on IE. lol
