Your comments and questions wanted!

So once in a while I'll take a look at my blog statistics, and while I don't exactly have a vast readership, I do find that my most-read post by far is Postgres Query Using Window Functions. Here are the stats:


I'd like to write more on this apparently popular topic - I just need some inspiration for specific questions and/or use cases to experiment with. So if anyone reading this has a specific question on window functions (or anything else for that matter), I'd be happy to attempt to answer!

Feel free to just ask away in the comments!

mwrynn PL/SQL table API now on github!
