A great opening to SeaPug

JD Wrote:

After performing perfunctory commercial duties by teaching a class in Seattle on the 9th, I was given the honor to providing the first talk at SeaPug. As mentioned previously the talk was titled Dumb Simple PostgreSQL Performance and is the talk I have given half a dozen times at various groups in the PNW over the last three months. I am excited to see the Seattle group launch. The first meeting had 14 people (including myself). If you are in the Seattle area and would like to attend SeaPug, point yourself over to their website.

Seattle PostgreSQL Users's Group

JD Wrote:

Last West, a sign up sheet was sent out for people who were interested in starting a Seattle PostgreSQL group. I am please to say that this group has started. Their first meeting is February 9th, 2010. I have the honor of being their first speaker. I will be speaking on Dumb Simple PostgreSQL Performance, which is the same talk I have been giving at various user groups around Seattle (Python, Django, Perl). You can check out there website here.

Member Expiry (did you know you are not a member?)

JD Wrote:

As most of you have seen at this point, United States PostgreSQL is about to have elections for three board seats. The seats are currently filled by myself (JD), Bruce Momjian and Michael Brewer. You can read more about the election here. In order to vote, you must be a current member of PgUS. Unfortunately we haven't been as good as we should be about communicating expiring memberships to people. Most of our original members became members at West 2008. The majority of those memberships have now lapsed.
