I just about had a hard time getting our system admin to install
Postgresql. All I ever heard about was MSQL is already installed. I was
under the impression that Postgresql was a more full featured SQL server
than msql. And besides that, it was what I was able to install on my home
MkLinux box, to learn. We're slowly making a switch from Microsoft SQL and
Everyware's Butler SQL server to a Linux/Postgresql combo. I've been very
pleased. 

The only problem I haven't been able to fix to date is calling "Dates"
from a database and displaying them like "Sunday May 31, 1998" instead
"05-31-1998"

Currently using PHP2.x not PHP3 yet...
