I've downloaded a couple non-expiring trialware (?) to try out while in NYC and had good results so far. I should blog more about them later, but consider this a linkblog-like heads up.

Limoliner recap

BTW, the limoliner Boston->NYC trip was absolutely the smoothest, most hassle-free trip to NYC I've ever taken including car, bus, train (accela+mundane) and plane. Super comfortable seats, movies I generally ignored, attendant service with snacks and drinks, and of course the big bonus of a wireless access point. All of this was $7 *less* than what Amtrak charged me to come back on the non-accela train.

Wow. Reminds me of the bus I took from Rio to Sao Paolo -- the first time I became aware that bus service could actually be something you didn't dread.

It also reminds me of -- I hope they last longer.

Roll your own enterprise DB's

The Mondrian Open Source OLAP project hit 1.0 last month. It supports both MDX and XML for Analysis against a Postgresql/ROLAP back-end. I have no personal experience with it, but darn it sounds impressive.

On a slightly weirder note, is this what I think it is? A distributed database supporting a SQL subset written in ... perl? Hmmm. I bet it's good for prototyping ... something, not sure what, though.
