Comment Re:SQLLite is a search engine?!? (Score 1) 62

Although they might have full text indexing and searching, databases and search engines/libraries work differently.

E.g. you come to online DVD shop and search for "Tom Criuse" (hint: misspelled surname). Every decent search engine (including Lucene library, not sure of others evaluated here) would yield a result, despite misspelling. I am not sure whether database fulltext thing would spit anything at all. It's simply built do do different job, that's it.


Submission + - Iran's IT security chief killed in car accident

mindas writes: "The Guardian reports that the man who leaked the real election results from the Interior Ministry — the ones showing Ahmadinejad coming third — was killed in a suspicious car accident.

Mohammad Asgari, who was responsible for the security of the IT network in Iran's interior ministry, was killed yesterday in Tehran. Asgari had reportedly leaked results that showed the elections were rigged by government use of new software to alter the votes from the provinces. Asgari was said to have leaked information that showed Mousavi had won almost 19 million votes, and should therefore be president.
