Getting trivsql to work with the final year project implementation has uncovered a few bugs — a little frustrating, but it is improving the quality of the code. It is amazing how actually having to use a body of code for a reall application helps you test properly… I wonder if Panda would benefit from this sort of testing as well?

Yeah, I have decided, in my wisdom, that the configuration information for the final year project application will be stored in a trivsql, tdb based SQL database. This is done because it makes it easy for the other people in the group to access (they all understand SQL), and to insert new config information later in life. I’m also not really interested in having to parse text based config files at this stage in my life.

It’s also an excuse to use trivsql for something interesting…
