Yeah - It would be nice to have one in a web page though.

Yeah - I just wanted to use an extreme example because
I think that storing "1" 200 M times in memory
or "500" 200 M times in memory will result in about
half the memory consumed vs. storing something like:

1.434.434534.4353465, although I would have to run tests
to validate that.

Awesome - That makes sense - I think between this, the material Alex 
sent, and the DAS I should be able to stay busy for a little while :-)

Thanks Emmanuel,
