RSS bot asplode. Fixed now.
Got this email today. Not 100% sure its legit, but it seems to be. Can anyone spot the problem?
Borderline miss at SIGMETRICS (A x2, WA, WR x2) with a paper on the difficulties of measuring database performance on smartphones. Admissions were tight: ~15% accept rate. Could make a good ICDE paper, maybe.
No luck with DAMON this year. It's a little bit sad, since we hit some surprises from the Android governor while benchmarking SQLite on mobile phones, and it would have been nice to share those. Most of the feedback seemed to suggest that the work was incidental to other stuff we were doing, which is not entirely off-base.
But that opens the question: If you can't publish surprising one-off findings at workshops, what do you do with them? Blog posts?
2 accepts (HILDA, TKDE), 1 reject (HILDA) in the last few days. Let's see how that compares to next week (DAMON, SIGMETRICS).
A gorgeous April day in sunny Buffalo.
Fingers crossed for #HILDA2018 and #DAMON2018 this year. Some great submissions:
> JSON schema exploration (https://odin.cse.buffalo.edu/papers/2018/submitted/HILDA-JSON.pdf)
> CSV header discovery (https://odin.cse.buffalo.edu/papers/2018/submitted/HILDA-LOKI.pdf)
> Android Governors' impact on SQLite (https://odin.cse.buffalo.edu/papers/2018/submitted/DAMON-Governors.pdf)
No longer British for tax reasons...
My CAREER on Declarative Uncertainty Management was just awarded!
Application recommended for acceptance :D
Got to start them early.
6) The tabbed interface sucks, particularly when you've got an app that tries to do as much as TBird. I like having separate windows for calendars, contacs, chat, and messages.
7) Creating calendar entries is really really awkward. Selecting times by dragging is way faster.
3) Preferences live in at least 3 entirely disconnected places (server settings, app settings, extension settings).
4) 2 search bars. One is super slow, and the other opens up a new search window instead of filtering the current view.
5) Searching defaults to "relevance" rather than "date". Ok, except that Thunderbird's relevance measure is garbage.
1) You get threads *or* unified mailboxes. Not both... or at least not as far as I was able to tell.
2) Threading support is awkward: (a) threads are shown top-to-bottom in time (no way to reverse that as far as I can tell), (b) There doesn't seem to be a thread view that shows all messages in a thread in a single window (i.e., what Mail.app and Google do).
