Who are you?

I’m a DBA, which usually means being hated by and hating everybody.

My GPG fingerprint is 2271 8795 79C2 9A50 DF1E 61EC 4D71 0A40 7C10 ABC9

My public key is 0x7C10ABC9

What’s your background?

I’ve a long working experience on Oracle and PostgreSQL.

Are you a developer?

No, despite the fact I can write good code, I don’t like writing code as a job.

Spaces or tabs?

Tabs, obviously.

Why did you created another blog on PostgreSQL?

I did because I see plenty of developers blog, but nothing strictly related with the database administration.

I think PostgreSQL is a first class product with powerful features but with unclear information about the caveats, the limitations and all the practical issues a DBA can face.

To be clear, the on line documentation on the official website is absolutely clear and well written. During my experience as Oracle DBA, i had only one single point of KB where to search for information, aka Metalink.

I really miss something like this in PostgreSQL and maybe, if I have time, I will change this blog in a central repository for DBA. For now I’m trying to write down my knowledge to avoid misunderstanding.

What’s your nationality?

I’m Neapolitan. I didn’t studied English so please forgive for my bad grammar.

What’s your Doctor?

The Fourth Doctor.

What’s your preferred Doctor’s quote?

There’s no point being grown-up if you can’t be childish sometimes.

Are you religious?

No, I’m an ateist.
