If you are interested in the most recent 100 transactions, instead of using currentTimeMillis()
as part of your key, you can use Long.MAX_VALUE-System.currentTimeMillis().  That way new
entries get put at the top.  Then you can have a start row of your scan to be ""
and the first result will be the most recent entry.  You can then just scan for 100 rows and
get all of what you want.

Ok so something like this?

row                                   cf:qual           value
----------------------------------------- data:page      "/foo/bar" data:referrer  "google.com" data:session  "f306e5af69b48568323fdc3018e40e7e"

----------------------------------------- data:page "/foo/baz" data:page "" data:page "f306e5af69b48568323fdc3018e40e7e"

Will this allow me to query the last 100 rows for ip "". If 
so, how? Will it be efficient? Also, would you mind explaining an 
alternative way of accomplishing this as I'm still trying to figure out 
all the possibilities.

Thanks again
