PostgreSQL - import of large texts and dynamic content

Tue, 31 May 2011 23:50:15 -0500

By Anton Borisov

PostgreSQL is an enterprise-level database. It is an open-source software, competes by some features with products from Oracle, so it is no surpise that more and more projects delegate such important duties like data-mining and data handling to PostgreSQL. And what's more important, the architectural design for this database is extremely powerful and conforms to KISS principal very close, so it is really very fun to deal with PGSQL internal programming, as well as maintaining it.

Running Encyclopaedia Britannica on Linux

Tue, 31 May 2011 23:50:15 -0500

By Silas Brown

Encyclopaedia Britannica is a commercial encyclopedia and is therefore non-free, but old versions of the CDs and DVDs can often be purchased cheaply in second-hand markets. Of particular interest are the 2004 editions, as its publishers have made available an unofficial Linux support script for 2004 editions of Britannica (the Windows installer does not yet work on WINE). If you follow their instructions, you can expect to see the basic encyclopedia articles and images, but you might have a more difficult time with the Webster dictionary entries and some of the multimedia.
