Profiling is a good idea for a future talk

A related talk would be 'omens of the future found in the entrails
of a dying program' ie. debugging and debugging tools (eg. gdb).

Both excellent ideas. I'd also like to through my personal
favourite into the mix - memory debugging, cache profiling, heap
profiling and thread debugging all in valgrind.

advanced features in FOSS dbs?
app development using postrgresql in C++

The next question is ofcourse when and whom? Volunteers?

Open talk dates are:

20/12/07 (?)

Two positive comments so The Wok it is!

Suggestions welcomed!
