/me joins EnterpriseDB!

I could not be happier... After I decided to leave markafoni, and when I started to look for a new job, EnterpriseDB approached me very nicely, and now I'm a part of that great team.

PostgreSQL Live CD for 9.0.2 released

You can add an encrypted home directory while burning iso to USB stick, which helps you to keep your personal data in your USB stick.

This live CD has current versions of many software, like pgAdmin III, phpPgAdmin, Apache, PHP, GNOME, Pidgin, Firefox etc., along with tons of PostgreSQL related packages.

Kickstart file is configurable, so you can also create your own PostgreSQL Live CD's fairly easily.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this live CD.
