Geek Humor – There’s No SQL really!

Writing by on Wednesday, 27 of July , 2011 at 10:59 pm

Why No SQL? When it comes to your typical application, it seems like a no-brainer to go with MySQL (MariaDB for anti-Oracle folks) or maybe  PostgreSQL.

But when it comes to applications that want to store really massive amounts of data every second (Gigabytes per second) even Oracle could have major pain scaling.

I haven’t played around with any of the NoSQL databases yet, but here’s an interesting video I found on YouTube. Read the comments on YouTube :)

Join several songs from YouTube into a single MP3

Writing by on Monday, 12 of July , 2010 at 11:10 pm

So my wife was practicing for a Bollywood style dance performance and the girls wanted to put together portions of three songs from YouTube. Now they want me to join the three portions of different videos and make one MP3 for the DJ to play. So how do you:

  • Create an MP3 from a video on YouTube
  • Cut the desired parts of the MP3z
  • Join these pieces together
  • Save it as an MP3

After a little searching online, I found one way of doing it. Thanks to some very cool people who have made life so easy.

Step 1: Download the desired videos (say from YouTube) and save them as MP3z (one at a time)

You can use to convert the YouTube video and save it as an MP3.

Step 2: Edit the MP3z

Download Audacity to Edit (or cut portions of an MP3)

Step 3: Ability to export from Audacity to MP3 format

Download Lame MP3 Encoder (through Audacity) or Lame MP3 Encoder (directly) to allow you to export your work to an MP3.

Step 4: Launch Audacity, then Open each MP3 and copy selected portions and paste them into a New Audacity project and export your work to an MP3.

That should get the girls off your back.

Titan Watches have been doing a version of the Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Symphony No. 25 in G minor and I really like this one (some claim this is by A R Rahman). This one has been stuck in my head.
