I met Kevin Kempter at a CLUE Installfest.
Kevin was hauling around gear in a great, Marine Corps bag. I thought, "Hah! Another jarhead. Hey ... how can I get one of those bags?"
He'd had the same thought. On a visit to MCRD, he saw a guard with the same bag, and asked him where he could get one.
"They're only for active-duty Marines, so I'm not allowed to tell you that if you go down that way one block and over two, you'll find the PX. Sir."
"Interested in giving a BLUG talk?" I asked Kevin.
"What would you talk about?"
Turns out, people are interested in Postgres.
Kevin played to a standing-room-only crowd last night.
He told us he has one client who's now pulling in a terabyte of data a day, and expects to expand this by a factor of 100.
