People everywhere

Third and final day of SolutionsLinux 2007 today. There's interesting people all over to meet yet again - and no, we haven't exhausted the supply yet.

As planned, Greg Heikki from EDB showed up - they actually managed to get here before me and Devrim, even though we weren't that late. Nice to meet Greg again, and I've never med Heikki before. But they're both good pg hackers, and when you meet such people, interesting discussions are always going to happen.

Had a nice chat with a guy from Ingres, and also with some of the guys from fon. Jean-Paul led the track of OSS databases in the "commercial talks" before lunch. I'm told there was a very good talk on migration to PostgreSQL, but I didn't even bother pretending to go there since it was all in French.

And I got to do the good deed of the day fairly early - taught the salesguy from Continuent that there is no such thing as Postgre. There are many options for how to say it, but that's not one of them. And since he's selling a product based on it, he should know. Which he now does...

(Oh, Devrim - when will you fix the date problem on planet?)
