Subject Re: Model to store biggest score
Date Thu, 18 Mar 2010 14:12:57 GMT
Another approach you can take is to add the userid to the score like,
=> (column=140_uid2, value=[], timestamp=1268841641979)
and f you need the score time sorted you can add
=> (column=140_268841641979_uid2, value=[], timestamp=1268841641979)

But I do think that in any case you need to remove the old entry so that you
get duplicates, unless I'm missing something here.
