Re: [suse-linux-uk-schools] PostgreSQL and Linux / Windows

OT: Bit more about my experience:- I spent a large sum of money (for me) for a
binary-only Omnis CD application containing over 500mb of data which was a
nightmare to query. Took less than 3 hours from receiving in post, and by
accident finding all the data in CSV format on my hard disk :)

Useful tool for administering databases may be the Perl-based Orac, although
I'm not sure if this has been that widely ported to DBs other than Oracle, and
unfortunately I've lost the URL. All searches have turned up far too much
info. about Blakes 7 so far :)

Picked up a copy of DB2 Enterprise developers edition from IBM today at the
joint IBM/RH effort . It was nice to see real techies giving demos of
software that they were genuinely proud of. I got the impression that they
were free downloads as well for the entry editions.

For those interested (anyone?) check out:

Visual Age for Java
Websphere Application Server ( a Java servlet Apache module).

Good starting point to find the downloads would be

http://www.ibm.com/linux/

Nice breakfast and lunch at IBM too :)

Finally, for those to whom this applies, have a nice break!

Clive.
