Coupla Howtos: SQLite & NcFTP

Filed under
HowTos

Everyone knows about open source database giants such as MySQL and PostgreSQL; these free SQL database servers are commonly used by Web applications and other programs. For some uses, however, large database systems like this are overkill. If you need a simple, lightweight SQL database, look no further than SQLite.

Use SQLite for a simple, lightweight database option.


There's nothing quite as painful as watching large files download over slow connections. And it's even worse when it's 9 PM, you're the only one left in the office, and you can't leave until your entire file upload or download is complete.

Fortunately, there is a solution to this unhappy state of affairs. You can use the NcFTP suite of file transfer tools to automate your file transfer, allowing you to go home, catch a movie, have a good night's sleep, and come back in the morning to find your work complete.

Automate your FTP Transfers with NcFTP and improve your efficiency.
