Idea for one application build around firebird
Seems to be the blog of the day :
More & more I want to write the issue/requirements tracker that has been in my head for so long. I would write it in either java, php or Ruby on Rails. I would put an embedded firebird database behind it. Now, I have to get people to believe that they should let me do this at work. I am too damn old and tired to do it at home in my oh so copious spare time.
[ED: He does have other nice blog posts with firebird]
