Meeting Points

I hate meetings. Some are necessary, most are not. What I’ve noticed is that certain people will just start adding people to meetings and then the meeting has 20+ people in it. There is no way to negatively reenforce that they are doing something bad, especially when 17-18 of those people are just sitting there staring at the wall. The other situation is the 2-3+ hour meeting that doesn’t really accomplish anything.

Postgres.app

Very cool. Download, launch, done. It is super simple and hopefully will get some people wanting to use PostgreSQL more. It has a default db of your userid, no password. Set your app to localhost/ for dev work. You can create new dbs pretty easily. Much easier than installing MySQL. The real trick was getting psycopg2 installed. Once I updated xcode and installed the commandline apps through xcode it worked like a champ.
