comment How can a big table be treated as a database?
@murta: I think that you just have to give :memory: or file::memory: where you usually would give the path to the sqlite file in the connect string to open an in memory database, but I have not tried if that works with DatabaseLink. I'd really be interested to learn what goes wrong on OSX with Database`OpenDatabase. AFAIK sqlite as such is available and working on macs, so it probably is just a matter of adjusting/correcting some library pathes...

comment How can a big table be treated as a database?
@murta: Yes, since version 10 I think there is a SQLite driver for DatabaseLink predefined, I'll make an addition about it. It probably is also worth mentioning that the undocumented access is very lightweight compared to what DatabaseLink does, but often using the documented stuff is still a better idea...

interesting, which OS are you on? I've used that in several MMA versions (example was written and tested with V10.0.2) on Windows and never had problems, but I remember to have seen complaints of others...

comment Possible bug: Quantity[2,“meters”] returns 2 None meters
it probably is worth noting that it might be a good idea to use the "canonical unit names" in everything that you intend to run more than once. Doing so should (I think) not show the mentioned problem and also will be much faster and work without an internet connection, which alone seems to justify the effort to find out what these "canoncial unit names" are. To do that, just look at the InputForm of what a Quantity is transformed to. Getting the interpretation of unit strings from the Wolfram|Alpha servers is a design decisions which is certainly arguable...

comment DeleteMissing issues
how exactly do you create such a list, by entering as input or is it returned from other functions? Can you show the offending lists when that happens with InputForm? One possible reason could be something like a "Missing"[] which as output will (with the default settings) look exactly like Missing[] but of course will not be matched by DeleteMissing...
