Hopefully this one will get thru...

Hi List,

I'm Eric Walstad.  I'm an independent contractor specializing in 
software for energy use analysis.  That means I've built and maintain a 
lot of database applications for PG&E and other energy utilities. Sadly, 
most have been written in Access/VBA.  I'm a relative newbie with 
PostgreSQL, most of my "real" database work has been with MySQL, the 
preferred(1) database of my main client.  I spent a year volunteering 
with to a) help with what I consider to be a worthwile 
endeavor, b) get my first experience working on an open source project 
and c) learn more Python and PostgreSQL.  I am hoping that subscribing 
to this list will help to liberate me from my recurring Microsoft Access 
nightmare.  I am hoping for SQL enlightenment and/or <shameless 
plug>leads to employment with enlightened individuals</shameless plug>.

Most of my "fun" time is spent with my wife and daughter or maintaining 
a few hobby-ish web sites(3) or learning more about programming.  I'm a 
voracious reader and also enjoy surfing, sailing and diving.  I've not 
owned a TV since about 1992.

I'm looking forward to "geeking Postgres stuff" with you all soon  :)


(1)  They are showing real interest in PostgreSQL, though.
          I worked on an alpha version of their in-house task
          management software.  It used PostgreSQL on the
          backend, Python/psycopg in the middle and Zope on
          the front end.
          Family forum
          Golfing event tracker (for a friend)
           Searchable photo album (psswd rqd)
           So my mom and dad can see what their grand daughter is up to
