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

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.

  • Parallel Database Restore, speeding up recovery from backup up to 8 times
  • Per-Column Permissions, allowing more granular control of sensitive data
  • Per-database Collation Support, making PostgreSQL more useful in multi-lingual environments
  • In-place Upgrades through pg_migrator (beta), enabling upgrades from 8.3 to 8.4 without extensive downtime

PostgreSQL at SELF

On Saturday, June 13th, I wound up manning the PostgreSQL booth at SouthEast LinuxFest, in Clemson, South Carolina. This free conference drew a larger crowd than I'd expected; organizers told me there had been some 450 registrants by the day before, and they were expecting a final total of over 500 (with walk-ups).
