Hi All;

I've got a development box that I use for a bunch of other purposes(mostly
music), and I was wondering if there was a way to configure launchd to only
start up postgres when it's needed.  SSH does the same thing so I've tried
to fashion a plist for this purpose modeled after that(on my box it's
located at /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ssh.plist) but something is wrong.
 PGAdmin 3 errors out when I try to connect.

Below is my nonworking plist.  Does anyone have any suggestions on what I'm
doing wrong?

Fender-2:LaunchDaemons development$ cat ondemand.postgres8.4.plist <?xml
version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">
<string>Postgresql Server</string>
