Phwe - Icy7venIt’s been a while since I last posted 7ven music; I know some of you miss it. :P You see, the amazing ME has been busy and lacking inspiration to sing; age is catching up. Truth be told, the main reason for lack of music post on mayvelous is cos’ our dear O’ Icy went back to Yangon for a few month. She just came back last week and must have brought back quite a few Karaoke CDs. She was telling me about the latest hits from home the other day and sent me these three songs that she tried out. As her most faithful fan, I have the honour of listening her songs first and am given the freedom of praise or criticize about them ruthlessly. ha`ha`

The three songs she sent are: (more…)

I fell in love with Google Forms for quite some time now. I’ve been making a good use of it in number of occations such as software borrowing register, our company seminar registration forms and even for a small lunch pack order form like this one I’ve created for my friend’s Lovo order. (more…)

  • Dear DotLucene

    Back in 2007 I posted a study notes post where I was planning to post about DotLucene and have forgotten about it. The other day I found these notes in my Google Notebook. Instead of lost and forgotten in my Google Notebook, it’s better to share here so someone can make a good use of it. These are just links and notes dump that I found over various sites. I hope I didn’t forget to add the link back references for all the notes.

    What is Lucene.Net?

    [ # ] Lucene.Net is a source code, class-per-class, API-per-API and algorithmatic port of the Java Lucene search engine to the C# and .NET platform utilizing Microsoft .NET Framework.

    Lucene.Net sticks to the APIs and classes used in the original Java implementation of Lucene. The API names as well as class names are preserved with the intention of giving Lucene.Net the look and feel of the C# language and the .NET Framework. For example, the method Hits.length() in the Java implementation now reads Hits.Length() in the C# port.

    In addition to the APIs and classes port to C#, the algorithm of Java Lucene is ported to C# Lucene. This means an index created with Java Lucene is back-and-forth compatible with the C# Lucene; both at reading, writing and updating. In fact a Lucene index can be concurrently searched and updated using Java Lucene and C# Lucene processes.
