Re: End of bitcoin?

any time-series database opensource projects with any inertia?

Anyone have opinions or awareness about opensource time-series DB's which have managed to achieve any sort of ongoing community & user base?

Away from more metropolitan areas I occasionally but repeatedly bump into job reqs seeking COBOL in the mix with more modern languages & API's.  This seems like a long tail residual effect of the pervasiveness of the IBM mid-range systems (Sy...
