Developer since round about 1998. Minor "fun" developing projects done before that.

Experienced mostly in Java, PHP and Python. But you can throw pretty much anything else at me. Chances that I've written a small application in it is high. Lua? Lisp? Clips? Blaise? SAS? and many more in my repertoire!

Apart from software development, I have a very good knowledge of Linux server administration.

Dedicated VIM and Linux user.

Any questions?

comment To get PHP communicate with PostgreSQL
I strongly advise against using WITH SUPERUSER for application roles! If you have root access to the machine you can easily change the auth method of the postgres user to your "hba" file *temporarily*. Then, create a user for yourself using md5` as auth method.

@andres-descalzo: It seems PHP does not support trust connections. I've been banging my head against the wall as well for the past 20 minutes... :(

comment `echo ::memstat | mdb -k` very slow on certain machines
Hmmm... cat /etc/release gives me Solaris 10 8/07 on the slow machines, and Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 on the faster machines. So it seems that this is the problem. Could you post an answer with something like "older versions of mdb is inherently slow for ::memstat! Upgrade!" so I can accept your answer? Credit where credit is due ;)

comment How should I monitor memory usage/performance in SunOS/Solaris?
nevermind: it works. I needed to restart the munin node for some reason.
