Hello,

I think the below just about says it all:

Roasting dolphins over the fire isn't exactly politically correct, and
the only people that could "get it" as being funny are those that are
in the advocacy group.
When I saw the image, I had to check at mysql.com to ensure that
the dolphin actually *is* the MySQL mascot.

find jokes involving furry creatures being blown up to be outrageously
funny at some weird visceral level.)

actually, may i suggeset

there actually was a design for a "Saturn IV" (really called a Saturn C4,
the contemporary Saturn C5 became the Saturn V, and development of the C4
was dropped) see

http://www.astronautix.com/lvfam/saturnc.htm)

this is awfully off topic, but here is a web page i've been working on
sporadically now for a couple of months that rocketheads may find
interesting:

http://www.averillpark.net/space/booster.html

I would suggest that if Tom wanted to use the rocket analogy, he might want
to compare PostgreSQL to maybe a contemporary Atlas 5 medium configuration.
the Titan II is quite old now and there's only one more launch scheduled.


Whereas despite the crashes, the Space Shuttle with it's
Add-On-Collection look alike is yet most popular ;-)

BTW this weekend we are going to launch a new satellite using
ariane V rockets ( http://www.satexpo.it/en/news-new.php/1?c=6531 )
this mean more users and more stress for our Postgres installation :-)

Hello,

All due respect to everyone but political correctness is essentially
the living with the feeling that you are a politician.
I am not a politician, neither is Command Prompt. We are a business, we
have opinions, views and a sense of humor.
These traits may or may not be representative of other people's views,
opinions and or sense of humor. If it is not
to your liking, don't view it, and don't purchase a shirt of mug.

Personally I have no problem standing up and saying, we going to eat
you alive because in my not so humble opinion,
and my very business plan states that our purpose is insure that
PostgreSQL is the number one choice for database use
in the small to medium size business. If that means I upset some people
along the way... well I am not a politician, I don't
have to make everybody happy.

Cheers!

Joshua D. Drake
