CouchDB looks Awesome, my Slug is borked

In lieu of a real blog post, and as a way to break the 3-week silence that has recently hung over this blog, I’d just like to say this:

I’ve been looking at CouchDB, and it looks awesome.

For those who don’t know, CouchDB is a RESTful, distributed, schema-free, document-oriented database.

It looks like it’s the answer to all those times when I was thinking to myself “Man, this really doesn’t need a relational database, it needs…something else.”

Well, from what I’ve seen so far, this just might be the something else.

I would have more to say about it, some examples even, except I’ve spent my last two evenings fiddling with my NSLU2, trying to get it actually up and working after having several hard drive issues. I’ve given up on one of my hard drives, but now the Debian install won’t finish, it dies half way through saying it failed to finish the configuration or some such thing.

Anyway, I may just have to give up on it sooner or later and start doing more interesting things, and once I do that, I’ll have something more to say about CouchDB, with some example code even.
