Check the slides at scribd, Getting Smart about the New World of PostgreSQL Replication. The first few slides are not specific to PostgreSQL and they define some common replication jargon very nicely.

I have created a emacs major mode, called lunatech-journal, that I use for blogging. It is a derived mode from muse-mode, an excellent mode for writing and publishing.
Currently, it has following functions defined
lunatech-journal-skeleton- loads a skeleton for blogging
lunatech-journal-show-hints- shows a buffer with questions to help me blog about my day
lunatech-journal-make-html- creates a html file from the muse-mode
lunatech-journal-preview- allows me to preview my journal in the browser
I use a php script to post the blog entry to the website. To use it, I have the following in my .emacs file
(defun journal () (interactive) (find-file "~/blog/journal.muse") ) (require 'lunatech-journal) (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("journal\\.muse\\'" . lunatech-journal-mode))
When I feel the need to blog, I do
M-x journal, I get dropped into my
journal file and I can blog.
