The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, March 13.  The meeting topic for this month is as 

    PostgreSQL: Who, What, Where, When, Why

    Adam Thompson will talk about the PostgreSQL open-source
    relational database: who should use it, what's it all about, where
    do you find it, a little bit of its history, and the rationale
    behind its current existence. PostgreSQL is the leading OSS RDBMS
    for non-trivial applications, scales to enterprise and beyond
    (petascale), and has features that let it compete directly with
    Oracle. In fact, there's a commercial edition that you can buy
    specifically to replace Oracle!

    RTFM: ulimit/limit

    Gilbert Detillieux will present an RTFM on ulimit(1), as well
    as the csh/tcsh equivalent, limit(1). This is a shell built-in
    command for displaying and setting various per-process resource
    limits, using the setrlimit(2) system call.

The group holds its meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of every 
month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and 
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a 
MUUG member to attend.

    Please note our meeting location for this month: *Room 1C16A*
    Centennial Hall, University of Winnipeg, entrance on Ellice Ave.
    between Spence St. and Balmoral St.

    Parking is available on the surrounding streets and in the lots
    on nearby streets.  Look for signage once you're at the building,
    or ask a security guard.
