  • 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.

It’s almost the size of my diary and has other fashion accessories, bag and scarf, to go with it. The color and the design is just so captivating that I just want to have a feel of it. The design is somewhat like a Japanese Kimono…

  • Feed Problem

    I transferred my feeds from to account. I don’t know why but the notice there says to move it by next month so I moved it. The previous link changed to, but both should work, the first one redirects to the new link so it’s fine.

    But a little problem; now I’m getting 50 old posts in my reader, all from Burmese blog. Feedburner link is my combined feed built with yahoo pipe so I don’t know why I’m getting lots of old post now. I checked the output from yahoo pipe and it shows both English and Myanmar posts in correct order but…those in current feedburner link are all Burmese. Just weird, may be the account still updating.

    Anyways, hope this short post comes out well.
    Alrite, testing 1, 2, 3.

  • My brother, Aung a.k.a Zatlite, has started blogging yesterday after a few years of persuasion from me. He started off with twittering ,which was also the result of my persistent persuasion, and has been a good regular twitterer to date. Yesterday, he suddenly made himself a blog and now he’s crazy about it.

    His very first blog, “The private life of a badminton maniac“, talks about all his passion on racquet sports, especially badminton and racquet breaking hobbies. I’ve posted some of his actions on the past Badminton games in this post and; photos and videos of his squash tournament here. Read the rest of this entry »
