It is one of my favorite databases because of its community, functionality, and extendability. FreeBSD with built-in ZFS support, jails, and several other features is a great platform to host your PostgreSQL instance. Installing PostgreSQL At the time of this write up the latest version of PostgreSQL is 9.6 but you are not required to install the latest version. 7 Things To Do After Installing FreeBSD https://www.cwharton.com/blog/post/7-things-to-do-after-installing-freebsd/ Wed, 27 Jan 2016 06:00:00 +0000 https://www.cwharton.com/blog/post/7-things-to-do-after-installing-freebsd/ If you are unfamiliar with FreeBSD, it is an operating system for your PC, server, or embedded system that is free and open source.

Disable/Enable Windows Lock Screen (Windows + L) https://www.cwharton.com/blog/post/disable-enable-windows-lock-screen-windows-l/ Wed, 16 Dec 2015 06:00:00 +0000 https://www.cwharton.com/blog/post/disable-enable-windows-lock-screen-windows-l/ Although Windows is not my primary operating system, I do need to use it in order to get my day job done. Therefore I run Windows in a VirtualBox VM. A good habit to have, and I often use is to lock my computer whenever I walk away from it.
