      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Postgresql Version 10: A Significant Upgrade For An Awesome Database

Recommended Posts

PostgreSQL version 10 was released a few days ago.

Yes, I know most webdevs use MySQL because that is what WordPress likes and their hosts offer, that some have made the sidestep to MariaDB; however a few of us find Postgres the better database for our requirements.
Note: I use PostgreSQL as my production DB and, naturally, as my development/staging DB.
Note: Where I differ from almost everyone is that I also use Postgres-XL to deliver real time bot identification/intervention and visitor personalisation/contextual delivery; also for non-real time analytics.

* New in Postgres 10, 05-October-2017.
* Appendix E. Release Notes, 05-October-2017.

To date I'm still testing the upgrade in my staging setup. So far only minor hiccups, mostly from not RTFM - the release notes are a critical resource! Now it's a matter of reliability testing before rolling out live.
Note: there is no such thing as enough thanks from the heart to the Postgres documentation maintainers and the wider helpful community. A poster child for open source.
