Hello Dave,

I installed pgAdmin II latest snapshot and Cygwin under Windows NT.
pgAdmin II obviously has a marvelous GUI. Marvelous job as always.

1) Cygwin
The bad news is that it took me 4 hours to install Cygwin and run 
Postgresql as a service under Windows NT.
The installation process of Cygwin is not intended for newbies like myself 
(who is it for, then ???).
Are you aware of any plans to automate installation of Postgresl under Windows?
Besides, Cygwin is a very nice product.

2) Icons
On my workstation, some icons do not display well.
Icons probably need 256 color depth to display correctly.
I will have a look at pgAdmin II icons and graphics tomorrow.

3) Further improvements
If you need help, I can work on project rebuilding features under your 
I can also help you writing a docbook documentation and maintaining a 
professional web site.
What do you think? What are your plans now?

4) Feature request
Half of users questions are related to socket connection problems.
People in the Windows world are not used to hba_files configuration.

There is a need for a small postmaster configuration utility comparable to 
the MS SQL Server one:
- to automate creation of postmaster service (this may solve Cygwin problem),
- to define socket connection rules,
- to show postmaster state in the deskbar.
Do you think this can be added to the todo list (not as a priority project)?

Cheers as always,
Regards, Jean-Michel
