PostgreSQL, Postgre and Apple

Apparently the Postgres lineage is sufficiently obfuscated to cause
people to think that the correct pronunciation/shorthand of PostgreSQL
is 'Postgre' and not 'Postgres'. Note the last line in the "What's New
in this Version" paragraph:

http://www.apple.com/downloads/macos...ostgresql.html

Perhaps all introductory material, press releases, etc. should begin like:

PostgreSQL, descendant of Postgres, is a sophisticated
Object-Relational DBMS...blah blah...

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
(send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to ma*******@postgresql.org)

Who can get them to upgrade their PostgreSQL to something a bit better
than 7.2.3?

That is a good idea. I just call it Postgres when I give a talk.
PostgreSQL is too hard to say over and over again.
