Hello folks,

Brief intro: I'm Josh, I work with Jesse at Zonar Systems.

Just to add what I'm interested in:

PartitioningPostGIS & GeoSpatial Performance
General Scaling Infos (Best practices, techniques, architectures)

I dig the idea of getting into the changes in 8.3. I'm sure there are quite
a few hidden gems that could make life easier for all of us.

I'm looking forward to hearing from everyone else!

-Josh
