Dumb Simple PostgreSQL Performance (Joshua Drake) (This was the SeaPUG
2/2010 talk, in case you missed it.)

people who are not DBA's but web developers or those who have been
thrown into management of PostgreSQL.

Bucardo: replication in action (Selena Deckelmann) (This is next months
SeaPUG talk, in case you can't make it.)
Bucardo is a mature replication system for PostgreSQL that supports
asynchronous replication for both master-slave and multi-master systems.
Originally designed for slow and unreliable networks, it has remarkable
recovery ability, an easy to use command-line interface and development
is active! Uses for Bucardo include: a slave read-only database,
multi-master replication, data warehousing and just having fun moving
your data around! Will include overview replication for PostgreSQL in
general, a tour of features, a basic configuration walk through and
details about how to make your database an active participant in your
application ecosystem

PITR Made Easy (Joshua Drake)
A one hour talk on how to configure Warm Standby and PITR for
PostgreSQL.
