Brian, Howdy! I'm Josh Berkus, I'm also on the Core Team for PostgreSQL, and I wanted to give some closure on your issue before you quit with a bad taste in your mouth.
Your posting hit a sore point in the collective PostgreSQL community, so you got a strong reaction from several people on the list -- probably out of proportion to your posting. Or, to put it another way, you posted something intended to offend people out of your frustration, and got a very offended reaction back. > Rather than trying to figure out whats going on in my head, how about > figuring out whats going on in my database? :-) > I am not allowed to share schemas...sorry but thats what the contract says. > The queries represent code, thus intellectual property, thus I can't post > them. I think you recognize, now, that this list cannot help you under those circumstances? A significant portion of my income derives from clients who need tuning help under NDA. If, however, you don't need any capabilites that PostgreSQL has which MySQL doesn't, hiring a consultant would not be money well spent. > I really wasn't looking for battle this fine day....I'm going outside to > BBQ! (and if you conclude from that that I'm not interested in this or > that, there's nothing I can do about that. It is a beautiful day out and > bbq does sound more fun than this list. sorry) No arguments there ... wish I didn't have to work :-( -- Josh Berkus Aglio Database Solutions San Francisco ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 8: explain analyze is your friend
