The site was up for me both times I hit it, but it doesn't mean that
Zero Piraeus didn't get a DB error (which *is* quite an amusing
error in the context of the subject matter).
Reading the MySQL gotchas and comparing it to the PostgreSQL
gotchas, the MySQL ones scare the pants off my inner DBA, while the
PostgreSQL ones are mostly "if you're running at 6+yr old version of
the software, there are some peculiar behaviors".
