Just because I've been playing with it a lot lately & the 19.2 release makes it look like integrating it might be relatively easy, would you be interested in adding CockroachDB as a supported platform? The cockroach demo command ostensibly provides an ephemeral in-memory enterprise instance; and having seen it in action it appears to do what it says on ...

Best of luck in your future endeavours - it's a pity that this silliness over pronouns is causing so much grief. I liked your analogy to religious belief; there's a difference between accepting/tolerating something in others and being expected to advocate/enforce it yourself. I do hope you keep the dbfiddle.uk site up. It's a great contribution to the ...

I am late to the farewell party. But I want to express my deepest regret to see you step down. You were one of the reasons I kept contributing here - even if it started with controversy around my first post: Working of indexes in PostgreSQL Comments are deleted now, but the answers still show how that turned into something productive quickly. The way you ...

feature-requeststatus-completed A couple of nice-to-haves would be: Ctrl-Enter to run the code rather than having to use the mouse? and also, after running the code, can we be dropped at the end of the page? Normally, one tries stuff, progresses, then adds more - so the focus of interest is normally at the bottom of the page. It's irritating to have to ...

You resist being compelled because it's against your Christian beliefs. You give us no means by which we can reason with you because ultimately no argument on the basis of respect and decency can convince you to do ...

As a navel-gazer who mostly checks in to see if I've had any recent rep changes or comments to my Qs and As in addition to making new answers if the existing answers weren't quite "good enough" for my situation, I thought I'd throw in my non-literal two cents. First of all, thank you Jack for your years of service to the community. Secondly, I guess I don'...

I always liked DBA because there's losts of really meaty technical issues to talk about, but many of the forums (and their administrators) are extremely unpleasant towards anybody who does not think like xhey do. It's perverse: in an effort to be polite to the smallest number of people, they are obnoxious to the largest. Are there any other forums you plan ...

I am very sorry to see you forced to leave, Jack. Your sound judgement and seemingly infinite patience will be much missed by the moderation team. Thank you for your selfless service to Database Administrators over the past 8 years. A personal thanks for making me a (somewhat) better moderator in so many ways. My very best wishes for the future.

So sorry to read that, Jack. You've been one of the best mods I've seen on the SE network. If it's time to move on, move on. As the Greek said, it's a sad day for DBA.SE. Don't be a stranger :). Cheers!
