It has just about the fastest insert performance of anything you're likely to be looking at (I have an optimized instance for $WORK that peaks at about 30,000 rows inserted per second on fairly regular hardware).

Cool, thanks.  I have needed an excuse to learn it.  I suppose the syntax is not that far off from MySql.  I used to use MySql and not even look at Pg because the MySql community was so large.  In all reality, there is more traffic on the MP user list than MySql users mailing list.

Thanks for the nudge, next project I will give it a try.
