For all the folks who occasionally check in here, I was finally able to start on some experimentation to use postgresql as a full replacement for RavenDb and NEventStore: https://gitter.im/JasperFx/Marten?utm_source=share-link&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=share-link
“Marten” because they’re one of the very few natural predators of ravens

In that case Tellurium may be cleverer as they are both group 16 elements.

@joemcbride I have a surprising number of older friends who were FoxPro guys who love to go on and on about how it was the best thing ever and what a crying shame everything after was
Selenium is the cure for Mercury poisoning

I was at ThoughtWorks about the time they wrote the very original Selenium just to test their homegrown replacement for the horrendous Lotus Notes based T&E system they had. Don’t think that system ever went anywhere, but the testing tool did;)

@jeremydmiller I never used it myself though have heard the same rants. I used something kind of similar, I think, Oracle Forms 4.5 with Pascal.

“Oracle Forms 4.5 with Pascal.” — OMG, that stuff is from before my time. I’ve never heard a nice word about Oracle Forms.

lol - I used that at an internship at the local School District when I was in High School.
I really didn’t know how to program yet so it was all new to me.
