Certainly ask your boss to make phppgadmin available for you to access
your pg db from anywhere in the world... it is a php-based script
library (is that the right way to put it?) that runs on the web
server. It kicks everything (including the kitchen sink!;-))! It is
extremely easy to use, and if you are a web kitten then is probably
even more intuitive than access. I have tried to use pgadminIII a bit
but it crashed on me quite a bit - not something I like (I am running
8.0.0beta3 on gentoo).
You really must give this a go, even if it is just at home on
something you set up yourself. Postgres has an excellent windoze
installer and I imagine apache and php also (never used them on doze).
You should be about 10 clicks away, if windoze is as low as I believe
it to be, from a working phppgadmin. If you want I will help you on
your way through (i wouldn't mind installing apache and php on my doze
partition, so can see how it's done, but you'd better have a go at
least first...) to get there.
