The work on PostgreSQL is adventure, and very good experience, very
good school for me. It's job only for people who like programming, who
like hacking, it isn't job for people, who go to office on 8 hours.
Next I use PostgreSQL for my job - and hacking on PostgreSQL put me a
perfect knowledge, perfect contacts to developers, and I can work
together with best programmers on planet. and I can create some good
things. Probably if I work on commercial projects I can have a better
money - but life is only one, and money is important, but not on top
for me - life have to be adventure!
