Hi.

I think you meant Talend, right?

I have used the ETL functions of both Pentaho and Talend, as well as Informatica (and MS SSIS a smidgen). Right now, I am using Talend Open Studio for several production integration worfklows. It works well. The only issue I have with it is that you need to know some Java syntax, at least, to create calculations and expressions. Since I am not very fluent in Java, that makes Talend a little tougher for me to use.

The BIRT suite has always sounded impressive. If I become better skilled at Java in the future, I will certainly check it out.

I have never used Jaspersoft, so I cannot comment on it.

Comment XGameStation also provides retro-gaming hardware (Score 4, Interesting) 83

Another option for retro-gaming hardware is Andre LaMothe's XGameStation line of DIY kits.

Looks like they now have a "Chameleon" line of kits, in both 8- and 16-bit flavors, which are similar to Arduino or BASIC Stamp systems.

I have not personally used these, but they appear to be pretty cool.

Enjoy.

Comment Is this different than the VH1 Classic site? (Score 2, Interesting) 192

At http://www.vh1classic.com/browse/video/17278/featured-playlists/index.jhtml, you can play lots of videos.

These have been available on the VH1 Classic site for quite some time now, I believe.

Since MTV and VH1/VH1 Classic share the same corporate parent, maybe they've just now added the VH1 Classic video content to MTV's site.
