PostgreSQL | Long time no post...
Whoops, looks like it's been the better part of three years since I last made a post on this blog. Life, etcetera, has got in the way for a while, and in the intervening period I've also moved countries - to Japan, where I've long wanted to live and work and which has a thriving PostgreSQL culture.
Luckily I was able to step into a job involving running PostgreSQL as the core of a multi-million dollar business, and while it's not always been plain sailing, PostgreSQL (even the clapped-out 7.4 version running a legacy app) has proved by far and away the most reliable part of the operation and I'm looking forward to implementing the replication features available in 9.0.
Meanwhile this blog, and several other sites on the same server, are now of course on 9.0 (and the supporting application has even played an ever so minor role finding a bug in a 9.0 beta). Once again, my thanks to everyone who puts in much more effort than myself for making PostgreSQL such a great product!
