All I have to say is wow! COPY works sooo much faster than the iterative method I was using. Even after having to read the entire binary file and reformat the data into the binary format that postgres needs it is an order of magnitude faster than using a prepared INSERT. At least that's what my prelim testing is showing me. I will have to let it run for a while with a larger table to see how it performs in the longrun, but initially this is very positive.

Thanks, guys!
