Talk Description: PostgreSQL Worst practices

This talk is prepared as a bunch of slides, where each slide describes a really bad way people can screw up their PostgreSQL database and provides a weight - how frequently I saw that kind of problem. Right before the talk I will reshuffle the deck to draw ten random slides and explain you why such practices are bad and how to avoid running into them.
