Rafael:  Thank you very much, I was having a huge headache to solve the very same problem!

Ray:  Having the same problem. Very frustrating. Luckily, for some reason my released version worked on the iPad itself, but now I can't get it to run in the simulator. Getting no such table, which I'm guessing is an initialization error. Will continue to investigate.

Jeremy:  FYI, I've just tried it with the SQLite 3.7.0 preview and the same problem occurs.
Also, I'm not using any extra third-party libraries with my SQLite, so the problem isn't your Unicode extension.

Jeremy:  I'm having the same problem with compiling SQLite against iOS 4 for the iPad simulator, but in my case it works fine running on an actual iPad (also works in the iPhone simulator and on an iPod Touch).
Same problem with, 3.6.23, and at least back to 3.6.21. Compiling against iOS 3.2 makes it work, though that's not really an option for iPhone (as opposed to iPad) apps.
I have no idea what to do about it or how big a problem it really is...

Pascal:  The problem seems to have deep roots, however there is a solution, see the updated post. :)

John Halamkas impression of using Mac OS X for one month

Wednesday, November 29th 2006 - 16:16
I just read a good 17 pages article over at, where John Halamka, MD and CIO of the Harvard Medical School and CareGroup, was kind of disappointed by his XP-Laptop and decided to take a one-month-switch ot the Mac, then Linux and then a new XP machine. It's a long article with very good points and quite impartial, be sure to read it!
His conclusion is not really surprising to us long-time Mac users, it sums up what we've known for decades:
"I used to think that the Macintosh was something used by free spirits just to be different," he says. "Now I realize the Mac has such superior human factor engineering that it's used by people because they can be more productive."

Running IE 6 on Mac OS X using wine

Thursday, November 16th 2006 - 22:55
It`s now a week since I have my brand new MacBook Pro, and despite the fact that I`m absolutely happy with it, I tamper it with Installations of various kinds. So, one of the things I – as a spare time webdesigner – had to try was installing the dirty old Internet Explorer 6 through wine. I first did a test install with the 60-day trial of CrossOver Mac, a commercial wine-implementation, and this went just fine. If I could do that myself using wine, I`d get the same, but for free; so read on.

Multiple CSS Stylesheets - only one recognized

Monday, November 6th 2006 - 21:46
While working on one of our widgets, I decided to split up the CSS code into two separate CSS Stylesheets and include both with their own <link>-tag. This is common practice on websites and shouldn`t pose any problems.
I thought so.
Then I headed on and tested the layout within Safari and – what? Everything scrambled. It turned out that the widget/"webpage" only recognized one stylesheet, whichever came first.
After very much digging and trying and uncommenting code (I did change one of the Stylesheets through JavaScript and first thought that was the cause), it finally worked: I had a title-attribute in every link-tag, and although those were different titles, it didn`t work as long as both had a title-attribute. So I removed the title-attributes and everything is fine now.
As a sidenote, even Gecko-Browsers show this behaviour. I didn`t bother testing other browsers since I`m glad I resolved this issue and can continue to work on interesting stuff. :)
