What is my IP address?

For a number of reasons it is nice to know your own IP-address. If you are behind a firewall or a NAT system, you usually only have a private IP-address and "someone else" on the internet needs to tell you your official IP-address.

Given what usually happens with free services - they are closed once in a while - and with freemium services - they change the business modell - I decided to run my own service. After all, it's not that complicated, and it integrates well into my own Dynamic DNS service.

Run your own Dynamic DNS server

Dyn, the company behind the widely known dynamic DNS service DynDNS, will shut down it's free service effectively May 7th, 2014. Of course there are plenty of other free or freemium services out there, but history will repeat itself and these services will vanish over time, or change their business modell.

PGDay Caribbean 2014 - April 1st joke

You might have guessed it, yesterday's announcement about the PGDay Caribbean 2014 was an April joke.

I've got this idea back at FOSDEM 2014 when we discussed possible options for our European PostgreSQL conference this year (and no, this conference will certainly not take place in the Caribbean).

There's another first: on the first day after the Call for Papers we already got two talk submissions ;-) I'm not sure, but I think this never happened before.

I would like to thank Magnus Hagander for his help with the DNS setup, cross-checking the website content, correcting my mistakes and everything, without him this would not have been possible.

Will leave the conference website online for a few more days, enjoy it! 

PGDay Caribbean 2014 - Sommer, Sun & PostgreSQL

PGDay Caribbean 2014 is a one day PostgreSQL conference which takes place on August 1st, in the beautiful city of St. Martin in the Caribbean. The event follows a well known pattern from other PGDay events: great talks, good community, drinks - and we add summer and sunshine on top.

The Call for Papers will be opened tomorrow, but we have a limited number of seats, so head over to the conference website and make your reservation today!

See you in the Caribbean!
