Compile SQLite for WinRT with FTS4 unicode61 Support

I was experimenting with the FTS3/FTS4 feature of SQlite in a WinRT app. The default tokenizer ‘simple’ wont tokenize special character like $, @, etc. The solution is to use ‘unicode61’ tokenizer. Unfortunately the SQLite installer for WinRT8.1 comes without unicode61 tokenizer.

New Focus: Data Scientist

I've had questions about data science from folks who (somehow) felt that calculus and differential equations were important parts of data science. . . Their weird focus on calculus didn't seem to involve using any data. Odd: wanting to be a data scientist, but being unable to collect actual data.

Test Attribute #2 - Readability

We often forget the most of the value we get from tests come after we’ve written them. Sure, TDD helps design the code, but when everything works for the first time, our tests become the guardians of our code. Once in place, we can change the code, hopefully for the better, knowing that everything still works.
