I have just joined the Capital District BSD Users Group mailing list.  I would like to introduce myself and ask a few questions.

I have been a computer professional for many years.  Most of my time I have spent working as an Oracle database administrator on VMS, Tru64, AIX, and Solaris.  Showing my age with DEC's (a company that hasn't existed since 1998) VMS and Tru64 OSes.

In 2005 I was introduced to PostgreSQL.  After researching and experimenting with it, I became a fan and advocate.  I started the Capital District's PostgreSQL Users Group (http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/NYCDPUG) and even authored a few documents for the community:
Unfortunately, those of us attending the PUG meetings decided to disband due to lack of interest.

At home I run FreeBSD for my personal PostgreSQL and Tomcat servers.  ZFS may not be the highest performing file system, but its data integrity, snapshot, and integrated volume management features are very attractive to me.

How active is the CDBUG?  Do you still meet?  If so, when and where?

Does anyone have a recommendation for commercial support for FreeBSD?  There are many listed on the FreeBSD website, but none stick out ... http://www.freebsd.org/commercial/
