Dont use OID's when your table has a huge amount of data.
ie +2147483647 records.
then your oid will roll over and will not be usefull.

  Subject: [NOVICE] Question on oid's

  My first question is about oid's. What are they exactly and when should/shouldn't I use them. I had trouble finding any information on them in either the online documentation or the online books. I'm using pgadmin to develop my database and I noticed that once I select or don't select oid that I can't change my mind.

  Thanks for you help.
