In this blogpost, I shared two scripts: one was to dynamically configure PostgreSQL to the specs of the machine it's running on (based on three different "usage patterns": web-based backend, online transaction processing, and data warehousing/business intelligence), and the other script was a very basic startup/init script for PostgreSQL. In the init script I put a few new lines (new to me, at least), so I figured I'd explain those.

First off, the lines in question:...

sometimes ago, i read an ingeneer, so loving linux system like, as i can read from him.
