the gatekeeper for the DB.

Another option would be to use Valentina Server or to compile your own
little application to be a database server.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
