Yeah, I'd been away from mysql for quite some time, and I'd assumed the
reliability issues had been taken care of.  I'm going to have to take a
stab at PostgreSQL.  It's not as whiz-bang fast, but it's rock solid.  I
think replication is a reality there now as well.

Heh.  Mine isn't gone, but it does seem to take a nap a few times a day.

Sure.  I have to fast-track my upgrade from 5.3.30 to 5.4.whatever.  I was
hoping to have some more prep time.  Hopefully I can find some tips on
what's changed in the archives.
