Semi materialized views are just views with aditional rules and some
triggers which copy data to another table. There are several receipes
if you google accordingly.

I do not know what you mean by "bootup time" - do you really reboot
your database server? *hehe* just kidding ;)

In your first email you told me your query indeed runs faster the 2nd
time (due to the caching) now you are telling me that it is not.

Btw, judging from your analyze output you are using very cryptic
table and column names - you can use aliasing in the query and dont
have to resort to tiny tags when you actually name the objects ;)

Maybe others have comments on your query. Btw, better use
explain analyze to get realistic results.
