I am a long time Lucene fan, and was excited about being able to use Ferret in Ruby land to work on the same files.
That dream just died as David Balmain (Mr. Ferret) has jumped away from the Lucene file format:
This is the first Ferret announcement I’ve put up for a while, the reason being, the most recent releases of Ferret have been alpha releases. I completely rewrote Ferret from the ground up so that it no-longer uses Lucene’s file format and I was able to gain so great performance improvements in the process.
Do I need Ferret to use the same file format? Often-time no, as the app is in pure Rubyland, however, I know of a few projects in which being able to access the index from both worlds is a definite plus….. and not through a web service ;)
I guess we will have to use one of the other lucene ports for that.

Ouch. That may hurt in the long run. I thought David was working (on) Lucy, so that situations like this one coul dbe avoided…

Growing pot indoors is easy and legal, If you have a medical marijuana card. In some states in the USA you can actually grow up to 12 marijuana plants or more, legally. With that being said, it can be a bit of a pain to actually start growing your own.
But there is technology that can make growing ganja indoors easy and fun. Indoor hydroponics systems can now be used to bring your herb garden indoors, and create danky, sticky marijuana and cannabis buds all year long; Ripe for the plucking and ready to smoke! Homegrown marijuna is higher quality, and much safer than pot that has been purchased commercially off the street. Those looking for medical benefits, will find growing their own marijuana to be the answer to creating your own medicine for pain releif and to treat symptoms.
Aeroponics is an application of hydroponics without a growing medium, although a small amount may be used to germinate the seed or root a cutting. Plant roots are suspended mid-air inside a chamber kept at a 100% humidity level and fed with a fine spray of nutrient solution. This mid-air feeding allows
the roots to absorb much needed oxygen, thereby increasing metabolism and rate of growth reportedly up to 10 times of that in soil. And there is nearly no water loss due to evaporation.
How do you grow cannabis and marijuana indoors? Look for a stealth hydroponic grow box with powerful lights and odor control…

Pretty nice huh? Indoor gardening for the 21’st centurty made easy with state of the art hydroponic grow systems. I know these are made for growing culinary herbs according to the web site, but they can be used to grow any plant! These grow boxes are great for the beginner or advanced gardener. I haven’t used one, but my buddy says they work great for legal cannabis cultivation. My girlfriend wants one to grow her orchids and fresh tomatoes! But you can grow anything. Just remember to check your local and state laws before growing your own marijuana. Don’t do anything illegal!! Be safe….
Flood and drain (or ebb and flow system) subirrigation: In its simplest form, there is a tray above a reservoir of nutrient solution. The tray is either filled with growing medium (clay granules being the most common) and planted directly, or pots of medium stand in the tray. At regular intervals, a simple timer causes a pump to fill the upper tray with nutrient solution, after which the solution drains back down into the reservoir. This keeps the medium regularly flushed with nutrients and air.
