Back in my Mandrake days I tried out Postgresql. I found it quite
complicated to get it started, all the messing about with something
called postmaster. I don't know why databases have to be so complicated
in Linux. Anyway, I do not have Postgresql set up on my computer, but I
do have mysql running quite happily, so I will stay with that for the

Meanwhile, I am very impressed with knoda. And yes, Postgresql is one
