Hi Jonathan,

Good to have you post and very interesting too.

You had me until that statement above, cos that just sounds too much
like a self fulfilling prophecy.... especially since, as we know, the
current books are all out of date.

If your average spend on books per download of PostgreSQL is about 6
cents, I think there's something wrong somewhere. [775,000 downloads
this year]

Mind you, a salutory lesson for us all....

Best Regards, Simon Riggs
