I'm very interested in Chris's PostgreSQL talk.

I just looked at the Brumcon link to attempt to work out if Wolvescon is 
my cup of tea. I'm not that interested in deep technical talks as I 
don't have that much technical knowledge. I'm much more interested in 
applications. I guess I could show some projects written using Gambas & 
Basic4Android (including a couple of mine). Would that be appropriate 
for Wolvescon?

Regards, John

Hi Ron

I like the idea and will come along.

I can roll out my talk on DNS, if needs must, but its a little dull.

However if people are interested, I'm thinking of putting together a 
talk on PostgreSQL.
This would be more along the lines of what make PostgreSQL so awesome 
and why you
should throw away MySQL and all this new fangled NoSQL stuff.

As such I'm thinking of covering things like:
   - Why you should care about your data
   - How MySQL violates your constraints and some of its amusing oddities
   - Database functions, how handy they are and what awesome things you 
can do with them
   - Flexible schemas using the new JSON type

I'll try to keep the talk light and amusing hopefully.

Would people be interested in such a talk?

    In recent discussions with Re-Load it has been suggwested that there
    should be a Wolvescon (on similar lines to Brumcon
    http://www.brum2600.net/brumcon/ ) and we have a date of Saturday, 30th
    November as a possibility.  We have a venue (with a bar) available on
    that date.

    In order to do this we need to start getting things moving ASAP, so
    firstly, who would be interested in getting involved?

    Secondly, do you have a talk you could give (I will probably roll out my
    IPv6 talk). We want to know that we have the talks before we start
    committing ourselves.
