The PostgreSQL team--that's all of us--received a very nice thank you
note from Guy Flaherty in the IS Department of Xavier College,
Australia, which read in part:
"Quite simply, nothing else was able to match the overall package that
PostgreSQL provides to the DBA or developer for doing this in such a
straightforward and reliable manner."
Josh Berkus has taken a position with Sun Microsystems.
