Long time no post - but I just got back home from the Netways Nagios Conference 2008 where I was invited to give a talk on "PostgreSQL Monitoring - Introduction, Internals And Monitoring Strategies for postgresql.org" so I figured it is time to say something again ...

this feels strange - my sister just told me that she is expecting a baby and that I'm about to become uncle which is feeling really strange.

pgday.it in Prato was a truly marvelous conference, but everything is eventually coming to an end and so did this conference. On sunday Gabriele and Andrea took us one a tour through Florence ending in a great dinner and a bit of a challenge to catch the last train^bus back to prato ...
Today we started at around 09:30 in the morning trying to get Magnus to the airport which turned into quite a long trip mostly due to the fact that andreas navigation system developed something that can only be described as "artificial (un)intelligence".
After we left the airport we thought we were good for going back up to Salzburg (and Munch) but the navigation system acted up again and caused so much confusion that we actually managed to get up the highway WITHOUT(!) getting a ticket from the toll station.
After a somewhat interesting discussion which mainly consisted of well wild gestures and "i have no idea what you are talking about" faces we managed to get a form that probably claims (again all Italian) that we turned around on the highway or something like that - but well it seems we don't have to pay anything for "hacking" the italian highway system.
On the way back to the car from the autostrada office we met the guy manning the 18+ toll houses again telling us that there is a completely unlabeled underground crossing to the other side of the highway which would have been a good thing to to know earlier for well "making crossing a highway "easier".

so pgday.it is in full swing, and it's a truly impressive conference. Andreas and I arrived after a 7h drive from Salzburg in Prato.
Today is the first day of the actual conference and one can only barely imagine the amount of work the organizers have put into this ...

So I went to the electronic shop and bought one (including the optional remote and two games) but I guess that might have only been the start because now a nice new LCD television would suddenly make sense ...
