comment Embedded Code in PDF Documents
A good antivirus program can handle that. It will check the code "while" it is being run. Not as nice as checking beforehand, of course. The point is, antivirus programs are pretty good at dealing with potentially problematic PDFs. Anything you put together manually will probably not be as good.

comment Does copying a database in PostgreSQL preserve statistics?
The pg_stat_* tables are not actually tables but views that access information in shared memory. So the information there is not affected by the copying of the template database.

comment Postgres 9 baseline maintenance script
Well, a reindex will block your database for the time it runs. But if that doesn't bother you, reindex and vacuum full and cluster away.

Well, autovacuum off by default used to end up being a real gotcha for a lot of people as well. ;-)
